PREPARATION FOR THE CGMP EXAMINATION

Questions are in the form of case studies and essay questions that document your own experiences, reactions to specific situations and problem-solving exercises.

No review sessions are necessary. Review materials are available for you to study at your own pace at your own time.  The list of competencies indicate the knowledge areas to be tested.

The re-certification form is also available to download from our website at anytime.
