Please read the options below carefully to ensure you pay for the appropriate CDFM examination modules for your preferred testing method and location.
TESTING OPTION A: Pearson VUE Online Proctored At-Home Testing (OnVUE)
ASMC is thrilled to announce a new delivery method to increase access to all of the CDFM examinations. ASMC’s testing partner for the CDFM and CDFM-A, Pearson VUE, launched online proctored CDFM testing on June 1, 2020.
Online proctored test delivery allows you to take your certification exam securely from your home or office. With just a simple check-in process, involving ID verification, face-matching technology, and a live greeter, you can test without leaving the comfort of home. The delivery platform mirrors the experience at a Pearson VUE testing center, including the same candidate NDA agreement, exam content, survey, and results report.
This new delivery method will not replace in-person testing for those who prefer to complete the exam in a testing center environment. Candidates who purchase or have purchased any Pearson VUE CDFM exam can select either At Home (OnVUE) or Test Center Testing when scheduling their exam.
Run the Pearson VUE System Test on the computer on which you want to take the exam to see if your are eligible for online proctored testing. (Copy the access code and enter it when prompted. If you get green check marks for Microphone, Internet speed and Webcam on the “system check” step, your system supports online proctored testing.)

TESTING OPTION B: Pearson VUE In-Person Test Center
ASMC has employed a professional testing company, Pearson VUE, to administer all of the CDFM exams, year-round, in a computerized format. The exams are available worldwide, both on military bases and at off base Pearson VUE Professional Testing Centers. Available dates and times vary by testing location. You can search for the nearest testing sites by visiting www.pearsonvue.com/asmc and clicking on “Find a test center”
If there is a Pearson VUE testing location that works for you, then purchase a Pearson VUE exam on the ASMC website here. The examination fee must be paid for each module prior to scheduling. After purchasing a Pearson VUE exam, you should receive an email in 24-48 hours with your Pearson VUE candidate ID and directions on how to proceed with exam scheduling.
**Note: All CDFM Exams are $99 each and NON-REFUNDABLE except in the case of duplicate purchase.**
TESTING OPTION C: Special Arrangement Testing on base or at other proctored locations
In rare instances, it is not possible or not desirable to take the examination at a Pearson VUE testing center due to location, availability, or other circumstances. In such instances, contact ASMC to arrange for (non-Pearson VUE) computerized testing or paper-and-pencil testing with an approved proctor.
Note: Special Arrangement Testing is not currently available at ASMC Headquarters in Alexandria, VA, as staff is working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Testing at the Headquarters is expected to resume in the future.
