Remote Testing for the CMA & CSCA Exam Available

New convenience and flexibility for CMA and CSCA exam takers:

Candidates can now register to take these exams either in-person at a Prometric Test Center or remotely, from the comfort of home. The exam fee is the same for both in-person and remote testing, but there are some important technology and space considerations that must be met. If you’ve already signed up to take the in-person exam, you can switch to the new remote option (a rescheduling fee may apply). For more information and to review the requirements, check out these Remote Testing FAQs.

Answers to the following questions and more are available within the aforementioned FAQ -
