Where can I take the CMA Exam?

Candidates often ask where they can take the CMA exam. The CMA exams are tested in person at Prometric Testing Centers around the world, or you can use Remote Testing (see below). Knowing where the closest testing center is to you is an important part of your planning process. If there is no testing center in your country, you may have to get a visa, and if you have to travel far away, you have to plan on additional time and expenses. 

Remote Testing

Beginning January 18, 2022, candidates can take the CMA exams remotely, using Prometric’s ProProctor™ service. The exam fees are the same as the in-person exam.

Remote proctoring is available globally, except in the Crimea part of Ukraine, North Korea, Iran, Syria, and Cuba.

To qualify for the remote testing option, CMA candidates have to meet certain technology and space requirements. Please see the IMA Remote Proctoring FAQs for complete details.

To see what to expect during the remote testing, please check out ProProctor Candidate Information.
