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 30 experimental questions. The exam is 5.0 hours in length with an optional 30 minute break in the middle.
