--- Advance yourself in the profession!

As many wrestle with the idea of attaining the CMA certification, it's important to know that the investment of your time and money is well worth it!

What can a CMA certification do for you?

First, passing the CMA exam is a huge personal achievement. It takes a lot of discipline and dedication to study after work and sit through an examination. But, once you've conquered the first part of the exam, your momentum will carry you through the remaining part. You will feel on top of the world when you have completed both parts. This positive attitude will manifest itself in both your personal and professional endeavors.

Second, it will generate many professional opportunities.  Preparing for and passing the CMA exam will increase your professional knowledge, skills, and abilities, thereby rendering your services and expertise more productive and valuable.

Third, your commitment and drive will not go unnoticed. The ambition and work ethic that is required to attain a certification while also balancing professional and personal responsibilities demonstrates to your supervisors the energy and determination that you possess, not to mention the new skills you have attained. Even if your employer does not acknowledge your certification directly, they will notice your hard work, effort, and refinement of skills.

The IMA reports that those who are certified increase their career earnings by approximately $500,000. It's a great investment to your professional career!
