    Hello!

    On the IMA website there are 3 testing periods for the CMA Exam but is the entire month open for testing or specific dates ?
    Eg. for testing periods Sept/Oct what are the dates ? Is there somewhere I can look up more informations.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards

    Hello Yacuta,

    Trust you are safe and doing well

    You can check the availability of exam dates at Prometric center before you book your seat by following these steps:
    1. Click this link  Prometric - ICMA
    2. Click: Locate in the left side of actions area
    3. Select your country and state (USA - Illinois), then next
    4. Select your your appointment (Part 1 CMA exam / Part 2 CMA exam), then next
    5. Type the area name (Willowbrook), then search
    6. Select the proper location from the available list 
    7. Click on Availability to check the available seats or Get directions for Google map.
    8. Select the preferred month, then press Go to see the available exam dates & testing times

    Kindly note that IMA will provide you with an authorization number once you pay for any part of CMA exams. That number will be used to book the appointment at Prometric center which will send you another appointment confirmation number.

    Gentle reminder:
    Please take in consideration that Part-1 needs more preparation time than Part-2. With full time work and family commitments, I totally recommend to think of Jan/Feb 2021 window instead of October.

    Wish you best of luck, success, safe & healthy condition

    Kind regards

    Thanks Samer.

    I used the link and it seems weird that there are dates open in Dec 2020 even though that is not the testing period. Not sure if I am looking at it right but did follow your instructions.

    It is open entire month, except for weekends. You can choose any weekday. Some dates may fill up soon so you'd want to book your dates and slot early. Also, you can reschedule your exam date within the same window for free. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Neha for the response. Looks like lot of dates are unavailable for locations closer to home :(
