TMA has updated our exam process to better suit your professional needs. The best part is no more traveling to take prep courses and the exam – everything is available 100% online. There is also no timeline. A deal comes up? No problem. Prepare for each exam at your convenience. 

About the Certification Exams

The three topics covered by the certification exams are Accounting and Finance, Legal Principles, and Management.

  • Each certification exam is designed to assess advanced knowledge of the corporate renewal profession in the U.S.
  • Candidates have 24 months to pass all three exams.
  • By registering for an exam, candidates agree to abide by the testing site rules.

Candidates who have earned the CIRA designation, offered by the Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors (AIRA), are exempt from taking the Accounting and Finance exam. Candidates who have earned a Juris Doctorate are exempt from taking the Legal Principles exam.

TMA Global recommends the following progression when determining the order in which candidates should complete their examinations.

  1. Level One – Accounting and Finance Certification Exam
  2. Level Two – Legal Principles Certification Exam
  3. Level Three – Management Certification Exam

Preparing for the Certification Exams

The certification exams are challenging and candidates should prepare well in advance of their scheduled testing date.

There are many ways to prepare for the examinations and a great deal of "what works best" is largely dependent on the individual’s learning style, studying preferences, level of experience, and prior knowledge.

It is strongly recommended that candidates read and review the Body of Knowledge (BOK) books prior to taking their examinations. More information about the books may be found here.
