Certifications

NCMA’s certification programs have become the national standard in our profession. An NCMA certification tells current and prospective employers that you have mastered the portions of the Contract Management Body of Knowledge (CMBOK) covered by that certification.  NCMA certifications help you differentiate yourself from your peers, demonstrate your commitment to professional development and may help you with a promotion or help you in your job search.  NCMA currently offers five professional certifications: Certified Commercial Contracts Manager (CCCM)Certified Federal Contracts Manager (CFCM), and  Certified Professional Contracts Manager (CPCM)

The CPCM, CFCM, and CCCM are certifications awarded to candidates who meet rigorous standards, including experience, education, training, and knowledge. They are professional designations of distinction, and carry the respect of their peers in the profession. The NCMA professional certification program is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and distinguish those who demonstrate knowledge essential to the practice of contract management. The CPCM exam is based on all of the competencies found in the Contract Management Body of Knowledge (CMBOK). The CFCM and CCCM exams are based on knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), respectively. All exams are designed to be legally defensible and psychometrically sound.
