CA-AM Exam

Certification exams test an individual’s knowledge of key alliance management skills. Potential CA-AMs are tested on overall alliance and operational competencies related to running an existing alliance, but not on the entire alliance life cycle.

The CA-AM exam:

  • Is un-proctored and administered online
  • Can be taken in one sitting or over a period of 30 days
  • Takes an average of 90 minutes to complete in one sitting
  • Is experiential in nature – questions appear to have more than one right answer, but there is only one “best” answer
  • Consists of 85 multiple choice questions
  • Requires a score of 59 to pass
