Schedule Your Exam
After you have been approved to sit for the exam and you have paid your $350 exam fee, you will be able to schedule your exam with Prometric.
Examinations are offered at Prometric testing locations during two windows -- April-May and October-November. You can schedule an exam anytime within those windows (depending on the hours of your chosen test center - some are open Sundays, some aren't).
The Prometric Prepare for Test Day link offers useful test preparation tips. The What to Expect page explains in 8 steps what you can expect at the test center to help you become more comfortable on test day. The Test Drive page details how you can perform a dry run at a test center for a minimal cost.
The CIH exam consists of 150 scored items and an additional 50 experimental questions. The exam is 5.5 hours in length with an optional 1 hour break in the middle.
