Each CDMP exam consists of 110 multiple choice questions that must be completed in 90 minutes.  You will know your score immediately after each exam.  A passing grade is 50%.  A grade of 70% or better on each of three exams is required to obtain the mastery level.

The candidate must pay for each exam that he / she passes.  The cost is $285 per exam.  Normally, payment is made by credit card information that is provided to ICCP.  The payment is debited after the exams are graded.  Please note that it may take several weeks for the charge to appear in your credit card account.

The exams are supplied on USB drives.  Therefore, you must bring your Windows capable laptop to the exam (Apple laptops with Windows are OK).  Make sure that you bring your AC power supply. 

Note, this is an exam event only.  There will be no overview, review, or practice of the exams. 

You must register for the CDMP exams by sending an email to Webmaster.  Please indicate what time(s) that you are planning on participating in the exams.  You will receive an acknowledgement email containing additional information about the facility and requirements for your laptop.
