The Chartered Due Diligence Analysis (CDDA) designation denotes a superior level of understanding of international Due Diligence principles and processes in both investment due diligence and operational due diligence. Individuals who pass the CDDA review are recognized as Due Diligence authority, and the knowledge they have proven to hold, helps mitigate institutional risks. The qualification is internationally recognized as the gold standard in Due Diligence and will help you to improve your due diligence audit.

Application information

Before scheduling a CDDA exam appointment, you must have applied for the credential through IMDDA, paid all applicable fees and received an email notification that you have been authorized to take the exam from the IMDDA Certification Team.

Scheduling your exam

Once you have received an Authorization-to-Test email, you may schedule your exam. The email will inform you of the date range you may take the exam and will provide you with a 20 character candidate ID number. It is up to you to make an appointment to take the exam. Exam appointments may be made up to one business day in advance. Locations are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

IMDDA encourages you to schedule your exam as soon as possible.

To schedule, reschedule or cancel your appointment:

Via phone, contact Pearson VUE customer service and be ready to provide them with your 20 character candidate ID number.

Online, you must first create a Pearson VUE web account. When creating the account, enter the same name and email address that you provided to IMDDA in your application. It will also be necessary to enter your 20 character candidate ID number during the account creation process.

After scheduling your exam appointment, Pearson VUE will send a confirmation email listing your test date and time, the test center address, along with important policies for your review and information. Confirmation emails are sent for every schedule, reschedule and cancellation of appointments. If you do not receive a confirmation email, call Pearson VUE customer service to verify the status of your appointment.
