An important update to the launch of the CLTD 2.0 exam:  Due to the global impact of the Coronavirus on exam centers and CLTD certification candidates, we are delaying the launch of the CLTD 2.0 exam which was previously scheduled for release on March 14, 2020. 

ASCM will now be launching the new CLTD 2.0 exam on May 1, 2020, and the CLTD 1.0 exam will now be discontinued on April 30, 2020.

The information below outlines the changes to candidates’ CLTD exams:

  • Candidates with CLTD ATTs expiring before May 31st will have their ATT extended to May 31st.
  • Candidates who have an ATT as the result of a CLTD bundle purchase, may still receive their 2nd chance exam outside of the 90-day purchasing period as long as after they take and fail their exam, they reach out to [email protected] by July 31st to issue the 2nd chance exam.
  • Candidates with a CLTD learning system will receive an extension on their learning system through April 30th (for those with a CLTD 1.0 learning system) or through May 31st (for those with a CLTD 2.0 learning system).
