What is the CMX Certification

The Commerce Management Certification is a globally recognised designation that sets and assesses global standards for Commerce Management Executives, CMX.

Becoming a CMX titleholder requires you to pass three increasingly difficult exams, CMX Level 1, CMX Level 2 and CMX Level 3. These exams are devised to test your empirical knowledge of ecommerce and its application.

You can use the CMX title after your name upon passing all three exams.

3 levels of the Commerce Management Certification

CMX exams are designed for ecommerce management executives. However, there are no prerequisites to take the CMX Level 1 exam, other than your passion, ambition and empirical knowledge of commerce.
