Most internationally recognized certifications, such as the CFA®, have testing locations around the world. The following is a guideline for how to find listings of locations for each type of exam:



  • CFA Program: Exams are held in both June and December for level I, and June only for levels II and III. It is important to note that there is a reduced amount of locations for December examinations, so before you register be sure to check which exam locations are available.

  • CFP Program: Exams are largely held in the United States; however, international test sites can be created for an additional fee. For CFP test site locations, click here.

  • NASD Administered Exams: Series exams are held around the world. For a list of either U.S. or International locations, click here.
