CDME Final Exam & Graduation

Destinations International recognizes CDME graduates as those professionals who have completed all CDME program requirements. Once all courses and core papers are complete, follow these steps to graduate:

  1. Complete and submit graduation request form
  2. Complete and submit the final exam

The candidate has earned the CDME credential once all final exam assignments are accepted by the review committee. Each year, a graduation ceremony occurs at the Annual Convention and all graduates are invited to participate. To participate in the graduation ceremony, the following is required:

  • Submit the final exam by April 30 of the same year.
  • Complete any exam revisions by provided deadlines.
  • Register for the Annual Convention. You must be registered for the Annual Convention in order to participate in any associated CDME activities.
