Schedule your exam

As not all testing centers have wide availability of dates, we strongly recommend scheduling your exam appointment as soon as possible to ensure a seat.

Please note: If special accommodations are requested, please DO NOT schedule your exam appointment until your request has been processed. Contact for assistance.


Registered CAIA Candidates have two options to take the CAIA Exam:
