The IAMBD offers distance learning and online certification programs in all countries, and in-house instructor-led training in companies and organizations in many countries.

4. Are your training and certification programs vendor neutral?
Yes. We do not promote any products or services, and we are 100% independent.

You can take the exam online in the comfort of your home or office, in all countries. You will be given 90 minutes to complete a 35-question multiple-choice exam. You must score 70% or higher.

When you are ready to take the exam, you must follow the steps: https://www.iambd.org/IAMBD_Certification_Steps_1.pdf
6. How comprehensive are the presentations? Are they just bullet points?
The presentations are not bullet points. They are effective and appropriate to study online or offline.
7. Do I need to buy books to pass the exam?
No. If you study the presentations, you can pass the exam. All the exam questions are clearly answered in the presentations. If you fail the first time, you must study more. Print the presentations and use Post-it to attach notes, to know where to find the answer to a question.
8. Is it an open book exam? Why?
Yes, it is an open book exam. Risk and compliance management is something you must understand and learn, not memorize. You must acquire knowledge and skills, not commit something to memory.
9. Do I have to take the exam soon after receiving the presentations?
No. You can take the exam from your office or home, any time in the future. Your account never expires and there is no restriction of any kind.
10. Do I have to spend more money in the future to remain certified?
No. Your certificates never expire. They will be valid, without the need to spend money or to take another exam in the future.
11. Ok, the certificates never expire, but things change.
Recertification would be a great recurring revenue stream for the association, but it would also be a recurring expense for our members. We resisted the temptation to "introduce multiple recurring revenue streams to keep business flowing", as we were consulted. No recertification is needed for our programs.
Things change, and this is the reason you need to become (at no cost) a member of the association. Every month you can visit the "Reading Room" of the association and read our newsletter with updates, alerts, and opportunities, to stay current.
12. Why should I get certified?
After the failures of so many organizations during the recent crisis, firms and organizations hire "fit and proper" board members who can provide evidence that they are qualified.
13. Why should I choose your certification programs?
We strongly believe that we offer very good value for money:
a. The CMBD, the CMRBD and the CMCSCBD programs are unique in the market.
b. The all-inclusive cost of each program ($297) is very low. There is no additional cost for each program, now or in the future, for any reason.
c. There are 3 exam attempts per year that are included in the cost of each program, so you do not have to spend money again if you fail.
d. No recertification is required. Your certificates never expire.
