What is the CCCM?
A Certified Commercial Contracts Manager (CCCM) certification validates your education, training, experience, and knowledge of the Uniform Commercial Code.
Who takes the certification exam?
Contracting professionals who deal with commercial contracts and have a minimum of one year of experience.
What is the level of education required to become certified?
An undergraduate degree of any type from a regionally accredited college or university or from a distance‐learning institution accredited by the Distance Education Training Council is required. Degrees from outside the U.S must be evaluated by an independent third party such as World Education Services. Non‐degreed candidates for the CCCM who have ten years of verifiable contract management experience may request a waiver.
When can I take the exam?
Individuals who are interested in taking the exam must submit an application to NCMA. Once the application has been processed, reviewed and approved you will be able to take the exam. Note: If you intend to test at a Kryterion Learning Center do NOT attempt to contact Kryterion prior to receiving approval on your application.
Where do I take the exam?
The CCCM exam is offered at various times each week through Kryterion Learning Centers. There are over 600 national and international testing centers available. NCMA also offers exams at educational conferences―check the conferences page for the next NCMA conference. NCMA’s local chapters also host exams; check with your chapter or call NCMA to find out if your chapter is hosting an exam this year. Candidates who are not within easy driving distance of a Kryterion Learning Center may apply to take an online proctored exam at home. The online proctor option requires the purchase of a special webcam and strict adherence to Kryterion's procedures. This option is hosted by Kryterion, not NCMA. For details, please click here.
