IMA offers remote testing for exams

Jan 6, 2022

REGISTER NOW The Institute of Management Accountants is allowing candidates for its Certified Management Accountant and Certified in Strategy and Competitive Analysis exams to take them remotely. The English language exams for the CMA and CSCA certifications will be available globally wherever the IMA does business through remote proctoring. CMA and CSMA candidates can register for the exams beginning Jan. 18. in any testing window to be taken remotely without having to go to a test center run by Prometric, the institute's test administration partner. This will be an extra option for those who lack convenient access to a test center or who prefer to take the exams from home. Individuals across the world who are looking to earn these certifications will be able to access the exams if they can’t reach a test center. The move comes as the COVID-19 pandemic enters another year, with new cases spurred by the highly transmissible omicron variant. Remote testing will allow a safer way to sit for the exams in a socially distanced way. CMA candidates will be able register to take their exams either in-person at a Prometric test center, or remotely using Prometric’s ProProctor service. The exam fee will be the same for both in-person and remote testing. To participate in remote proctoring, candidates will have to register with the IMA for the CMA exam or the CSCA exam , and then schedule a date and time for their exam with Prometric, using its ProProctor remote assessment platform. Remote proctoring will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Given the ongoing challenges of the pandemic and the recent advances in remote testing, it is an appropriate time for us to begin remote proctoring for our CMA and CSCA candidates,” said Dennis Whitney, senior vice president of certifications, exams, and content integration at the IMA, in a statement Thursday. “In 2022, we are beginning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the CMA program. Remote proctoring is one in a series of continuous enhancements to the CMA program that makes it the leading advanced certification for accounting and finance professionals in business.” The two-part CMA exam tests 12 competencies. The CSCA certification is available to CMAs who wish to expand their strategic planning and analysis skills. Registration for remote proctoring will be available starting Jan. 18.
