Note: Taking CPCM™, CFCM™, or CCMA™ courses will help prepare you, but does not equal or guarantee your certification nor does it guarantee your eligibility to sit for the exam. Actual certification exams are based on the source material, such as the CMS™, CMBOK™, FAR. Preparatory courses are intended to help study source material and included practice exams are meant to understand question types. Neither are replacements for reading and studying source material.
