What to Expect

Examination Centers
ALA holds CLM exams twice a year: once in the spring, and once in the fall.

ALA's CLM exam is now being offered online at Pearson VUE’s many testing sites throughout the U.S. All approved CLM applicants will receive a unique url and password to register at one of Pearson's testing locations approximately one month prior to the exam.

What to Expect on the Day of the Exam
Examinees need to report to the test site 30 minutes before the start of the exam. You are asked to sign in and present photo identification such as a driver’s license or passport.  You will also be asked to sign a Confidentiality Statement stating you agree not to disclose or discuss the contents of the exam.

You will have four hours to take the exam, during which the only breaks that are allowed are bathroom breaks, one person at a time. No food or drink is allowed to be brought into the test site.
