    • How and where do I take CMM Exams?

      Exams I & II are held at all of the state chapter meetings throughout the year, as well as at the National Convention in the fall.
      To sit for a CMM Exam requires PRIOR registration with the CMM Registrar at the NARO National office. You are not required to pay for all exams up front (i.e. today); however, you are required to register for the exams (and pay for them) prior to actually sitting for an exam. In order to sit for the final exam (Exam III), you are required to pre-register (and pay) for the exam AND must have completed and submitted all of the prerequisite education credits affiliated with your level of the Program (Professional or Associate).

      Return to Menus



    • Can I sit for multiple exams at once?

      You may elect to take exams I & II at one time. However, at most state NARO meetings, they have a single exam time. The time allotted for the exams is usually 60 minutes. If you elect to take multiple exams (exams I & II) at a single sitting, you will be allotted 90 minutes, not 120. The National Convention does offer TWO exam times.
