As ICMA® (Institute of Certified Management Accountants) continues to monitor the global coronavirus outbreak, our top priority remains the health and safety of all CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) candidates and our staff. Given the current outlook, please note the following:

Prometric test centers reopen
Virtually all Prometric test centers around the world are open, many at full capacity. 

  • Review the complete list of open Prometric test centers. Note: This list is subject to change.  
  • Masks required – Until further notice, test takers are required to bring and wear a mask during the entirety of their time at the test center. Both medical masks or cloth face coverings are acceptable. Masks with exhale valves are prohibited for use at the test center. Any test taker who comes to the test center without a mask will not be allowed to test, marked as a “no show,” and will not be eligible for a free reschedule.  
  • Candidates should check for additional details by visiting Prometric’s coronavirus update page

Chinese-language exam date change 

  • The May 10 Chinese-language exam has been postponed until Sunday, July 26, 2020 (Note: The July 25 exam remains unchanged).
  • The November 7, 2020, Chinese-language exam has been changed to Sunday, December 6.
