March / April 2021 exam
Registration is now open! 

The Financial Data Professional Institute’s ultimate mission is to provide financial professionals who wish to upgrade their skill sets in the rapidly developing areas of big data, machine learning and data analytics with an accessible and yet rigorous program of study. As an FDP Candidate, you have, by proxy and intent, subscribed to this important end and we are committed to doing whatever we can to both ensure your well-being and preserve the integrity of our shared purpose, especially in these uncertain times. 

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and economies, we’ve been working diligently to enable you to sit for the upcoming exam as safely and as comfortably as possible. Like you, we’ve been closely watching for any updates that might provide a clearer picture of what the world will look like in the coming months and, unfortunately, ambiguity is the only constant. Yet, ambiguity is no reason for inaction, particularly for the FDP Institute where we have successfully learned, over the last several months, to best leverage technology to advance education, community, and industry growth.   

We are now pleased to extend that knowledge to our Candidates with the flexibility necessary for achieving your professional goals in the face of so many unknowns in the world. 

Registered FDP candidates have two options to take the Q4-2020 FDP Exam:  

Option 1:     At a Prometric Testing Center from March 29 - April 18, 2021 or
Option 2:     Through Remote Proctoring Testing (RPT) on April 18 - April 19, 2021 

Online, remote exams are offered using Prometric’s ProProctor™ application. For a remotely proctored exam, you must supply the computer which must have a camera, microphone and an internet connection and be able to install a lightweight app prior to the test event. You will be able to take the exam online while a Prometric proctor is overseeing the examination process remotely.


To schedule your exam at a Prometric Testing Center 

In the event that your exam is canceled, you will be eligible for option 2, to take the Remote Proctor exam on April 18th or 19th.
