GTML Exam

TMI’s computer based exams are timed for 120 minutes and delivered on the ExamStrong platform. You can take the exam online at a time and location of your choice after approval through the ExamStrong platform.

Coverage of GTML Exams

Generally, the questions appearing in TMI exams aim to check and validate examinees’ awareness and knowledge of the general frameworks of Talent Management, key practices and trends in 21st century Talent Management, and critical issues, challenges and opportunities in the discipline today. TMI exams, in keeping with the TMI Universal Knowledge Framework, steer clear of general Human Resource Management topics and stay focused on Talent Management. Examinees are expected to already be knowledgeable of Human Resources to prepare them for a more in-depth course in Talent Management.

TMI certification exams feature questions drawn from a wide selection of Talent Management areas, a knowledge in which the TMI body of knowledge defines as essential–to–have for individuals intending to be recognized and credentialed by TMI. The framework or scope of content and coverage of TMI exams is defined reasonably well by the TMI text prescribed for the GTML™ exam–takers – The Talent Management Handbook for Practitioners. More specifically, the following topics have been prescribed by the TMI Professional Certification Board in which the knowledge of examinees is tested:

Total Number Of Questions 60

Structure & Nature of a Typical GTML Exam

A typical GTML exam includes a mix of Type A, Type B, and Type C questions for a total of 60 questions.

TYPE A- GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF CONCEPTS
Questions directly test the examinees' ability to correctly recollect principles and generally accepted practices in contemporary Talent Management. The answers to TYPE A questions will reflect examinees' awareness and comprehension of critical Talent Management concepts as outlined in the TMI body of knowledge. There is only one CORRECT answer to TYPE A questions, and examinees are scored only if the correct options are selected.

TYPE B- ABILITY TO APPLY UNDERSTANDING & KNOWLEDGE
Type B questions directly test the examinees' ability to apply their understanding of the concept of Talent Management in real life scenarios. The answers to TYPE B questions will reflect examinees' capacities for critical analysis and gauging Talent Management challenges. Answers will then measure examinees abilities for devising approaches and resolutions to challenges with a high degree of success and effectiveness. Type B questions have four answer choices and only one of these four would be incorrect. The rest of the three of these answers would be principally correct, but they represent varying levels of accuracy for each respective question. The best of these three answers carries the maximum 10 marks, and the least suitable receives 5 marks. The second correct answer with mid-level suitability carries 7.5 marks. Examinees have to choose only one of these four answer choices and they are scored 0, 5, 7.5, or 10, depending on their choice of answer- option.

TYPE C- UNDERSTANDING OF ISSUES AND ELEMENTS OF PRACTICE IN GLOBAL CONTEXTS
Type C questions directly test the examinees ability to recollect and apply their awareness and understanding of unique global concepts that directly relate to real-life practices of Talent Management. Type C questions also have four answer choices and only one of the four will be incorrect. The rest of the three of these answers would be principally correct, but they represent varying levels of accuracy for each respective question. The best of these three answers carries the maximum 10 marks, and the least suitable receives 5 marks. The second correct answer with mid-level suitability carries 7.5 marks. Examinees have to choose only one of these four answer choices and they are scored 0, 5, 7.5, or 10, depending on their choice of answer- option.

The Objectives and Principles Underlying the Design of the GTML Exam

The TMI exams aim at validating the registrants' capacity to effectively perform a breadth of Talent Management roles and functions in complex organizations. The TMI exam system assesses registrants' knowledge about Talent Management theory and practice as well as their ability to apply this knowledge to achieve excellence in their careers. These exams are designed on standards derived from the TMI Standard Knowledge Architecture for Practice Excellence.

These assessments expect that individuals have read the material contained in the TMI Resource Box and maintain familiarity with the latest in Talent Management theory and practice by reading journals and books, and doing further research to supplement their learning.

Qualifying for the GTML Exam

Usually, an aggregate score of 65-70% of the GTML certification exam can qualify. However, an examinee's real, individual scores do not determine the recommendation for a credential award. Instead, the final recommendations for the GTML award are given by the TPCB after considering the benchmarked scores. These scores are derived by scaling the actual scores of examinees on an exam section and contrasting their score against the entire pool of examinees. The TPCB certification award recommendation system works on the affirmative-action approach, ensuring that examinees across various exam regions do not suffer or gain because of uncontrollable systemic or environmental elements.
