About the Exam
CTP Examination is made up of 170 multiple-choice questions and is
based on concepts and experiences in relation to treasury management.
Each question is derived from the body of knowledge, Essentials of Treasury Management, 4th Edition. The content/topic areas are located on page 4 of the Candidate Guide.
Your scheduled test appointment time is four hours, of which you will have three-and-one-half hours to answer 170 questions. The remaining 30 minutes is available for you to review an optional 15 minute tutorial (prior to the examination) and answer a brief computer-administered questionnaire (at the end of the examination).
During the examination, you will have the opportunity to review any question on the examination. You can change answers, mark or skip questions. Should your time expire while taking the exam, all answers, regardless of how they are marked will be calculated into your score. Once your allowed time has expired, or you exit the examination, you cannot see or review questions again.
An online calculator will be provided, similar to those found on all
PCs. You may toggle between a basic nonprogrammable, non-printing,
four-function calculator with the percent and square root buttons and a
scientific calculator. Candidates may also request a handheld four-function calculator from the test administrator. No other calculator will be allowed in the testing room.
At the end of the examination you will receive a printed report of your results that will include your name, title of your examination and whether you passed or failed, along with your performance diagnostics by knowledge domain. For more information about Exam Results and The CTP Exam Scoring Summary please visit the Rules & Regulations page.
**Please note that during the first exam administration under a new body
of knowledge, candidates will not receive their results until 6 – 8
weeks after the close of the testing window. This wait is necessary in
order to assess the performance and difficulty level of each exam
question and set a passing score. This affects the June/July 2014
window. The next affected window will be June/July 2017.
