In 1996, NAPM announced the Age of Modules rule: "Effective January 1, 2001, modules must have been passed within five years of the postmarked date of the candidate’s application for the C.P.M. or A.P.P." Most candidates are aware of the five-year requirement. However, there is an exception to the Age of Modules rule that some candidates may not be aware of: the exception is Module 4 of the former C.P.M. Exam. The Module 4 Exception to the Age of Modules Rule was announced in September 1999. The Module 4 Exception states the following: "As of January 1, 2002, only Module 4 of the updated exam may be used toward C.P.M. certification."
