Study Materials

CHMM, CHMP, and CDGP candidates need to be familiar with relevant laws and regulations, relevant scientific principles and their application, and best management practices. The exams are not based on any single reference, but the following resources are among those that may be helpful to a candidate.

CANDIDATE HANDBOOK & EXAM SPECIFICATIONS
IHMM has developed a Candidate Handbook to describe all aspects of the certification process and assist candidates in preparing for the examinations, including application instructions. Be sure to review the handbook thoroughly.

IHMM credentialing programs and examinations are each based on an Exam Specifications "blueprint" that is the outcome of a Job Task Analysis. The blueprints govern the competency requirements for each credential and provide the outline of topics for the examinations. Examination questions are developed from the blueprints and applicants base their examination study on the blueprint. Click the credential acronym to review its associated Exam Specifications blueprint: CHMM, CDGP, CHMP.
