CIPM® Exam Information
The CIPM exams (Levels I and II) are offered during two exam windows: March and September. The exams must be passed sequentially. The exams are computer based and offered in English only.
Test Center Locations
The CIPM exams are offered at many Pearson VUE test centers around the world. After you register, you can schedule your own exam appointment at your preferred test center.
Program and Exam Fees
When you register for your first CIPM exam, you will be enrolled in the program. The cost of each exam depends on when you register.
The Level I exam emphasizes the conceptual foundations of performance measurement, attribution, appraisal, and presentation, as well as the GIPS standards. This level is weighted more heavily on performance measurement and attribution.
The Level II exam emphasizes performance appraisal and manager selection, including application of the appropriate tools and inputs in more complex investment decision-making situations.
All CFA charterholders and candidates who have successfully completed the Level III CFA exam are exempt from CIPM Level l and may register directly for Level ll.
