The USM Foundation exam consists of 40 multiple choice questions and is taken online, within 1 hour.

  • Participants are successful if they have answered at least 26 questions correctly.
  • An elevated score is required for the USM Professional track: USM professionals need to score at least 30 out of 40 to pass.

USM exams are taken by APMG.

A USM training is not mandatory but highly recommended: for most candidates,  the new thinking of USM requires some serious 're-thinking'.
