CMIS Learning Formats
The CMIS preparatory program is hosted in leading hospitals, medical societies and colleges across the country, taught over several days by a PMI Instructor. Benefits include live, face-to-face training and class networking, and a set training schedule. The certification exam is administered during the last class meeting date.
Study for the CMIS certification at your own pace. PMI’s Self-paced Training package includes the full course manual shipped to your address, and access to a series of 10 pre-recorded lectures streamed to your computer, anytime. Perhaps the best feature of this format is the help while you learn. Each certification has a faculty designate that will conduct a live question and answer session twice monthly and access to a Self Study Forum on PMI’s Web site. Candidates may take up to a year to study prior to scheduling the certification exam. The Independent Study package includes one live proctored certification exam, administered in a community near you.
Offered once annually, Live Certification Webinars include ten 90-minute learning sessions taught in a live Webinar format via your computer. Interact, ask questions and get answers real-time. This option includes the full course manual shipped to the candidate’s address plus access to live webinars and recorded versions to review anytime. Once the candidate is ready to take the exam, he/she will make arrangements with PMI for an exam proctor to administer the test live in a nearby community.
Certification by Exam
Experienced professionals who have hands-on experience may opt to forgo the training classes and take the certification exam. PMI offers an “Exam Only” option for $299 exam fee. The exam is proctored live in hundreds of locations across the country. Review the exam preparation handbook.
Candidates may take up to four hours to complete the CMIS exam. A passing score of 70% or better will confer with CMIS certification.
