Posted on 03/17/2020 - 2:15 PM

UPDATE 3/18/2020

Due to the closure of Prometric test centers, CCMC has made the decision to cancel the April CCM exam administration. CCMC will be working with Prometic to move candidates scheduled to sit in April to the August administration. A communication will be sent to all candidates scheduled for the April exam regarding next steps by the end of this week. Please note that the Commission will be delaying the release of the new exam blueprint until the December administration to ensure that candidates who have already invested in preparatory materials will not be adversely affected. We also realize that given the current circumstances that your time may be limited as your care for your clients affording you less time to study. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through the logistics for candidates to reschedule.

3/17/2020: Notice: Prometric Test Centers in the US and Canada Closed for a Minimum of 30 Days

Within the past 24 hours, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have issued updated guidance on measures to be taken to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 disease.  In particular, the CDC lowered the number of people that should be able to congregate in the same space from 50 to 10 in the United States. 

Given this new guidance, Prometric has determined it is necessary and appropriate to close their test centers in the United States and Canada for a period of at least 30 days, starting today on March 17.  This dramatic step is necessary in order to comply with this new federal guidance as well as to further protect the health and well-being of the individual test takers and the staff that provide services at each of the testing locations. 

Currently, the Commission is working through how this will impact the April CCM exam candidates. As a result, the Commission will be sending out communication to our customers and candidates via email, social media and the Web site regarding the April CCM exam and related next steps by no later than the end of next week.

As this is a fluid situation, specific next steps will be dependent on circumstances that are changing daily.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Commission at ccmchq@ccmcertification.org. 

Thank you for your support and continued commitment as we work together to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our candidates.
