Important CCN Announcement: In 2011 the CCN conducted a CPMSM Job Task Analysis and completed the development of a new CPMSM Exam Content Outline. To allow sufficient time for the NAMSS Educators to develop educational materials, the first testing cycle using the new CPMSM Exam Content Outline will be in spring 2013. In addition to changing the CPMSM Exam Content Outline, the CCN, in collaboration with our testing vendor Castle Worldwide, Inc., has decided to change the number of items from 200 to 175 on the 2013 CPMSM examinations. Candidates will be given four hours to take the examination.
