CDM CREDENTIALING EXAM ADMINISTRATION
The three-hour (180 minute) exam is administered on computer at over 300 PSI Test Centers throughout
the United States of America (U.S). PSI, CBDM's examination services provider, is a leading provider of
certification exams for professional organizations. PSI Test Centers have been selected to provide accessibility
to the most candidates in all states and major metropolitan areas. A current listing of PSI Test Centers,
including addresses and driving directions, may be viewed at www.goAMP.com. Specific address information
will be provided when you schedule your exam appointment.
Exams are administered by appointment, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Saturday appointments
may be scheduled based on availability. Available days will be indicated when scheduling an exam with PSI.
This means candidates can schedule their computer-based exam on the date and at the test center location
of their choice after they meet current eligibility requirements (as confirmed by CBDM) and are sent an
e-mail confirmation from PSI inviting them to schedule their exam.
The exam is only administered in English and there are no provisions for translation. The exam is offered at PSI
Test Centers in the U.S. Testing locations are available outside of the continental U.S. on a limited basis and
may result in additional costs to the candidate. For more information, contact CBDM.

Credentialing Exam if the following steps have been taken:
1. Exam candidate selects the dictionary and sends the title, version, etc., to CBDM for review and

3. Candidate brings the exact dictionary that was approved to the PSI test center.
4. Candidate submits the dictionary to the PSI test site administrator and they will go through it
to ensure that there are no notes made in it or anything inserted. Candidates are responsible to
ensure they have allowed sufficient additional time before the scheduled exam slot for the test site
administrator to review the dictionary. No additional test time will be provided to the candidate for
any delays caused by dictionary review.
5. The candidate may use the approved dictionary during the exam, but no additional exam time will be
6. When the candidate completes an exam for which they used an approved dictionary, the dictionary
is thoroughly examined by the test center administrator. If any notes or other anomalies are found
the dictionary is confiscated and the administrator submits a security incident report to CBDM with
details about the possible breach. CBDM will investigate the incident and determine what further
actions may be required.
After CBDM sends you confirmation of eligibility to sit for the exam and PSI sends you information via e-mail
on how to schedule your exam, you will have a 90-day period (beginning the date of PSI's e-mail notice) during
which you must schedule and take your exam. Candidates are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Schedule as soon as possible for best selection of your preferred Test Center location, date and time. If you fail to
complete the exam within your 90-day test window, you forfeit the exam application and fees. To reapply for the
exam, you must submit a new exam application and fees in accordance with CBDM policy.
