CPWA Certification Exam

The CPWA certification exam is administered on the last day of each week-long CPWA university-sponsored class or IMCA-sponsored class.

During class sessions, university faculty and expert practitioners explain concepts, methodologies, and strategies found in the program curriculum in an interactive classroom format. These sessions are “educational” in nature and should not be solely relied upon for test preparation. Sessions designed specifically for exam preparation are typically held in the evenings during the week of class.
