Once your application is approved, AMT will provide (by email) a secure link to officially register for the exam date of your choice. At this time, the appropriate registration fee will be assessed:
$895 for AMT members
$1,095 for non-members
The registration fee is payable by American Express, Mastercard, or Visa. Contact Catherine Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not see the correct price after logging in. A receipt will be emailed following your purchase.
Your payment provides access to the two-volume CMTSE Candidate Study Guide, a seat at the online exam, and a comprehensive final exam report. For those who pass, AMT also provides a personalized, ready-to-frame certificate, marketing kit, recognition items, and recertification updates.
Once complete, your registration will be valid for two years from the date of purchase. This two-year term is helpful if you need to transfer to a different exam date or if your first test attempt is unsuccessful.
