The exams for all three levels are administered twice a year, in June and December. Candidates may only take one exam per administration.

In order to register for an exam you must:

  • be prepared to take the exams in English
  • have a valid Passport or other form of approved ID

Each of the exams is computer-based and administered test centers around the world. 

Remote proctoring is also now available for candidates unable to travel to testing centers. Candidates may only utilize remote proctoring if the ProProctoring application works properly on their home computer, and if their personal workspace environment meets a strict set of requirements. Learn more about remote proctoring with the CMT exams here.

Candidates will receive their results by e-mail approximately four weeks after exams conclude.

As a result of a recent policy amendment, there are currently no formal qualifying requirements to sit for the CMT exams. However, it is recommended that candidates have a university degree and experience working in the financial markets using technical analysis before attempting any of the levels.
