To attain the CPM® certification, participants are required to complete two components of the CPM® program. First, they complete 150-200 hours of independent study. They then attend a week-long residential program hosted by the IEOR Department at Columbia University, (dates to be determined). The coursework includes the study of the theory and practice of asset pricing, asset management, risk management, hedge fund management, corporate finance, fixed income analysis and foreign exchange. The CPM® designation is industry-wide recognized, now in its seventh year.

All candidates involved in the program will have the ability to finish in 150-200 hours of study as long as you are willing to put in the time. ACPM and Zoologic are bound by a one year license per candidate, if you are unable to finish within a year of receiving your log-in you may sign up for 1 additional year for a fee $500.

Those who register and pay will be allowed a 30 day "look" to evaluate whether or not you will complete the course. Should you opt out during that time period, ACPM will provide a refund less a $350 cancellation fee. After the 30 day "look” no refunds will be issued.
