The American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) is thrilled to announce a new delivery method to increase access to the Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) examinations. ASMC’s testing partner for the CDFM and CDFM-A, Pearson VUE, has 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, and results report. Learn more about this new opportunity here.
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. In-person test delivery at Pearson VUE centers will resume on a limited basis this summer at about 150 select testing center locations.
Candidates taking advantage of online proctored testing will still have to follow all of the steps listed in the CDFM Candidate Handbook. If you are already enrolled in the CDFM Program and are ready to take an exam, click here.
If you are not currently enrolled in the CDFM Program, this is the perfect time to take that step! In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the CDFM Program, initial enrollment is just $20 for ASMC Members and $35 for non-members through June 30, 2020. Visit asmconline.org/CDFM for eligibility requirements and program details.

How does this work and prevent someone from looking up the answers since it is virtual? An individual could have items around them to look at or google answers. How does a “greeter” be able to monitor to prevent this?
Good afternoon, Denise
The exam is remotely proctored at all times with the candidate in full view.
“Through OnVUE, Pearson VUE offers one proctoring option: Live Monitoring — Standard to our online proctoring offering. Test takers are monitored by artificial intelligence and a Pearson VUE-certified proctor via webcam and microphone during the exam. Exams are terminated immediately if prohibited behavior is detected. OnVUE Live Monitoring Proctors actively observe test takers in real time during their testing sessions. Greeters are available if a candidate fails to pass the automated check-in process. Greeters and proctors are located around the globe and proctor involvement is continuous. Proctors note abnormalities and other testing-related incidents using “Session Events” in OnVUE. These session events are logged and can be reviewed during and after a test taker’s exam session.”
