Once the applicant has been approved to take the CMSP exam, he/she will receive an e-mail with a link to the CMSP Exam website. The applicant will be given a choice of exam – CMSP-Technical (for engineers and developers) and CMSP-Management (for users/managers).
The CMSP Exam – for both Technical and Management tracks – will consist of 100 Multiple Choice and True/False questions generated (randomly within each topical area) from a Question Bank of over 2,000 questions.
Applicants will have fourteen days to complete the online exam. (The exam is open book.)
