GCMA is a centre-based qualification. You are required to contact with one of our ‘Registered Training Centres’ (RTC). You will need to pay for the classes or other forms of support provided by your training centres. Fees charged by the centres are in addition to our Pearson VUE exam fees.
Total time to complete the GCMA qualification will depend on your background and willingness. Exams can be taken any time of the year. Hence, you can take whatever time you feel appropriate for your preparation.
Our course books are sufficient to ensure exam success as we do not set any MCQ outside the content of the course books. Our practice questions are important to assess your own progress and preparation.
You can choose either to study independently or take tuition support from one of our registered training centres.
We recognise your prior learning and experience. If you already achieved a qualification and/or have gained work experience, then you may claim exemption on the relevant IQN qualifications.
We will then let you know the outcome of your application through email.
