Exam registration is continuous, meaning candidates can register any time, without restriction. You can schedule an exam as early as 48 hours after payment of exam registration fees.

Upon registration, exam candidates have a 12-month eligibility period to take their exam. This means that from the date you register, you have 12 months (365 days) to take your exam. Please note that the exam registration fee must be paid in full before you can schedule and take an exam.

Our experience shows that candidates have the highest chance of success if they sit the exam approximately two to four weeks after completing the training course. See our dedicated CISM page for more details.
