COVID-19: Are the CDFM exams available online?

    Due to COVID-19 restrictions, is it possible to take the CDFM exams online instead of traveling to a Pearson VUE testing center?

    If not, are there plans to make available for online testing?

    How can they allow a test at home?  There wouldn't be any monitoring to prevent someone from looking up the answers.  Just wondering.

    I was able to take a Pearson Vue exam online. However, you may need to cancel an exam if you've already paid. If it's within a 90-day cancellation window you're not guaranteed a refund, but if you call them they'll probably be amenable to it. There are multiple things you will need to do to set up your area.
    1. You will need to test both the input and output on your computer before you schedule it and then only use the computer you tested on.
    2. You'll have to download OnVue software.
    3. You'll have to remove everything from your area, esp. paper and writing utensils. This is a more extensive project if you have a ton of things on your desk.
    4. No one is allowed in the apartment or room or you will be disqualified.
    5. If you go to the bathroom or eat lunch during the test, you will be disqualified. No water is allowed.
    6. You'll have to provide your driver's license the day of.
    7. You'll need to close out of everything except OnVue. And it's a good idea to turn off any programs that you know run in the background as it could conflict with the software. For example, Realtek conflicted with OnVue for me.
    It's pretty strict but entirely doable.

    ​How is PEARSON-VUE able to Proctor an exam? Is there a video teleconference function where they can look over your should and see you? Is it the honor system now?

    You must have a working webcam and mic before you can schedule the exam. A smartphone must be used to take a pic of the front, back, and sides of the desk. The proctor must be able to hear and see you the entire time. If he can't, you could be disqualified without a refund.

    ASMC doesn't currently offer virtual testing at Pearson VUE testing for the CDFM exams. However, we are looking at options to offer exams online.

     

    For Pearson VUE testing center updates please use their Coronavirus Update Page  It's updated frequently and includes any changes or additions to policies in specific regions.
