Enrolling in Course Portal Courses
Enrolling for courses delivered through Course Portals is easy. If you are not already registered in LOMANET, follow the instructions on page 66 of the 2014 Education & Training Catalog. Once registered, use your login ID and password to access LOMANET. Select the course and your exam type (I*STAR, Prometric, or paper) and desired exam period, and complete any additional steps concerning payment, etc. Once your enrollment is completed, click on “My Learning” in the selection menu. “My Learning” displays the course for which you’ve enrolled if your course provides access to online resources and study materials. Click on the course title, which launches your Course Portal in a new window.
You will have access to the Course Portal through the exam period selected during the enrollment process. If you do not sit for your exam by the end of the exam period, you will need to purchase a fee transfer to change your exam period to a future period. If you are taking your exam at a Prometric Center, please see page 66 of the 2014 Education & Training Catalog for full instructions on selecting an exam date and the process for purchasing fee transfers.
Enrolling for Exams and Bundled Courses
LOMA requires proctored examinations for many of its professional designation courses. Exams are administered in LOMA member organizations and in independent testing locations. This section provides information about exam formats, enrollment procedures for both exams and bundled courses, and exam fees.
LOMA exams vary in length from two–three hours. Consult your Test Preparation Guide (TPG) or see the Designation Study Materials Roadmap for specific information about the length of your exam. As new or revised LOMA courses are released, the number of examination questions for some course examinations may change. If you enroll for a bundled course delivered through a LOMA Course Portal, the assigned study materials are included in your enrollment and are accessible via the Course Portal. Your enrollment process will depend on the type of examination you choose to take:
LOMA offers two options for exam enrollment:
- Online enrollment via LOMANET, our Internet-based education administration system
- Enrollment forms for paper exams, for use by independent students only, can be found here.
I*STAR and Paper Exam Center Directories for testing at third-party locations
Students who fail exams must pay full dates to retake the exams, in most cases. However, bundled courses (those courses that include exam fees and study materials) have a reduced rate to retake the exam. See LOMA’s Education & Training Catalog for fees.
Traditional Course Access
LOMA's traditional-access designation courses teach industry topics using printed study materials and proctored examinations. Study materials include print textbooks and Test Preparation Guides (TPGs) with printed and electronic versions of the course's Practice Questions and Sample Exam. Enrollment for an I*STAR, Prometric or Paper exam is purchased separately through LOMANET.
