The Capstone Experience

The FMA® Capstone Exam includes:

  • Two-hour, 100-question multiple choice exam
  • Proctored exam to be taken at Pearson VUE
  • Questions are application-based, using scenarios that rely on the learners’ three years of experience in commercial property and facility management
  • Optional Online Self-Paced Capstone Exam prep courses are available for the FMA®
