Examination Venue

Previously, the exam for CDCS was only offered twice a year. This is changing, and you will be able to book the exam yourself directly with Pearson VUE on a date and location that is more convenient to you (subject to test center availability). This will give you greater freedom to study at your own pace as you will now have a 12-month registration period, commencing May 4, 2021, in which to study and sit your exam. Instructions about booking the exam will be provided once you register.

Examination Fees

Registration fees include the examination, access to the online study materials, and exam venue fees. 

Exam Fee Cost (in US dollars)
Registration Fee $800
Exam Re-sit Fee* $475
Deferred Exam (from previous year) $125

*Applies only to those candidates who did not pass a previous exam.
