CFM Exam:

The Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) Exam will be offered on Friday, May 2nd.

The CFM Exam requires a separate registration through ASFPM. You will need to apply for the exam and pay ASFPM directly. Click Here to find the ASFPM Registration Form. You do not have to take the course in order to take the exam, but the course will provide a good overview of the topics on the exam. Please complete the exam registration with ASFPM at least a few weeks before the exam, because if ASFPM does not have your registration and payment processed, you will not be able to take the exam.

If you check the CFM box on the Registration Page, your name will be submitted to ASFPM for CEC credits.
