CHRM Exam Preparation Booklet
Candidates for the Certified Hospitality Revenue Manager designation receive a CHRM Exam Preparation Booklet that helps streamline and focus your study and exam preparation. The booklet and CD that includes all CHRM resource materials, lets you assess your knowledge and experience by individual competency and then directs you to the specific resource by volume, chapter and subject.
The CD contains five key knowledge areas that correspond with the Exam Preparation Booklet. As you identify knowledge areas requiring review or additional learning, you can access that information on the CD.
When you are ready to take the exam online, contact AHLEI’s Certification Department to have the exam sent to your proctor.
