SDFMwill launch its updated CDFM and CDFM-A exams next month on May 29, 2024, the opening day of its Professional Development Institute (PDI).  This is exciting!  

ASMC’s certification team, CDFM certificants, and subject matter experts have been working diligently to evolve these exams in recent months. We know you’ve got questions – luckily, we’ve got answers… 

  • How long will I be able to take the old exams?
    The “old” and “updated” exams will run concurrently from May 29, 2024, through September 30, 2024.  
  • Is there a transition plan for candidates who have already started preparing for the previous version of the exam?
    Any candidates who started preparing for the previous exams can test for those exams until September 30, 2024. After this date, only the updated exams will be available.    
  • Is there a new format for the exam, such as different question types or a different number of questions?
    No, there are still 80 multiple-choice questions on each exam.
