Before Your Certification Exam

Make sure that you prepare for your exam using study materials or classroom training, which will not only help you acquire and confirm the knowledge you need to pass the exam, but also provide you with more confidence, giving you the best chance at being successful.

Make sure that you:

  • Download the certification handbook (CMCO/CMCP).
  • Use study materials such as online training.
  • Keep your training materials organized.

The Day of Your Certification Exam

When you have purchased your exam voucher and scheduled a time for your certification exam, it’s time to prepare for your in-person certification exam at a Pearson VUE testing center. For your exam, you need to:

  • Bring two forms of identification.
  • Leave electronic devices at home, or in your car. This includes notebook computers, tablets as well as smartphones and other smart devices such as smart watches.

During the Exam

Expect to be answering various type of questions, including, but not limited to:

  • Multiple choice
  • Multiple response
  • Fill in the blank
  • Drag and drop

Prior to starting your exam, you’ll learn how much time you have to complete the test and what score you’ll need to achieve to pass your exam.

After the Exam

You will receive a test score immediately following the exam and learn whether you have passed. In case you did not pass, don’t give up! Identify the knowledge areas that need improvement, consider an online refresher course for CMCO, or our CMCP Primer E-Book and retake the exam. Remember that we also offer certification bundles that include certification retakes.
