Is this exam available in my country? What’s the best way to find the CMA exam locations?

CMA Exam Locations: The Good News
Unlike the CPA exam, CMA exam is available in many parts of the world. Afterall, IMA is proud to have members from 120 countries with 300 local chapters around the world.
You can easily check the location with the exact address, google map and direction from the prometric center website. Scheduling is also done here once you apply for the exam.
