  • 7 years of professional marketing experience 

Exam Details

The online test is made up of 150 multiple-choice questions. You’ll have three hours to complete it.

To pass, you must receive an overall score ​of 80% or higher and it is not required that you achieve a specific score in each domain. You will receive your scores immediately after completing the exam, including a breakdown by domain.

Your exam registration will include three attempts that must be completed within one year of enrollment. If you are unsuccessful in passing the exam, you must wait for a minimum of 15 days between exam attempts.

You will have access to the online learning program and exam for one year from purchase, and will automatically be enrolled in the exam on the first of the month following the month you purchased.
