STEP 4: Pay for Exams
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 Computer Based Testing (CBT)
ASMC has employed a professional testing company, Pearson VUE, to administer all of the 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 an 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: CDFM Exams are NON-REFUNDABLE except in the case of duplicate purchase.**
TESTING OPTION B: 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 also available at ASMC Headquarters in Alexandria, VA.
