CMA Coaching Program

 

IMA Switzerland Chapter wants you to pass the CMA exam! To help you achieve this challenging milestone, we offer a volunteer-led CMA coaching program. For each CMA exam cycle (three times per year), we offer the following sessions:

  1. Info session – first orientation on the CMA program – covering:
    1. Benefits of the CMA certification
    2. Test center, dates, where to find more info
    3. Self-study and review course options
    4. Discounts
    5. Q&A
  2. Get started! – getting a head start – covering:
    1. Planning
    2. Learn to study
    3. Study advice, tips & tricks
    4. Getting to know other candidates, opportunity to network, get support from peers and motivate each other
  3. First Q&A session – get expert and peer advice on the most difficult exam topics shortly before the exam – submit questions in advance for the best value
  4. Second Q&A session
  5. Celebrate! Ideally coinciding with another planned chapter event

 

The goal of the program is to inform, give tips and advice, and share best practices. Peer motivation will help you when procrastination is your biggest threat. We can help with particularly challenging exam topics. Lastly, you can connect with fellow members/candidates so you can help each other and expand your network.

  • This is a pilot in 2020-2021 which will be continued if successful and cancelled otherwise
  • Each session will be a 1 to 1.5 hour webex starting at 18.00 Swiss time
  • This is an exclusive benefit for Swiss Chapter members, offered for free by volunteers and partners
  • We don’t offer a full CMA course. Self-study or a review course are necessary to successfully pass the CMA exam
  • A high degree of self-motivation and initiative are needed

  • We’ll cover both exam parts 1 and 2 (they can be taken in any order and in the same exam window if desired)
