CFM Exam Information
CFM Exam Information
Information about the CFM exam at the 2018 CASFM Conference will be coming soon.
The Certified Floodplain Manager Program (CFM Program) has two fundamental goals:
- help reduce the nation’s flood losses and protect and enhance the natural resources and functions of its floodplains by improving the knowledge and abilities of floodplain managers, and
- increase the prominence of floodplain management in decision-making by local officials and the public.
The CFM® program supported by CASFM was developed and is administered by the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). A complete discussion of the CFM program can be read by clicking here. CASFM first proctored the CFM exam at the 2002 Annual Conference in Steamboat Springs. At that time, Colorado had only five CFMs in the state. As of 2017, the Colorado contingent has grown to nearly 500. Click here for the current list of Colorado CFMs
CASFM will proctor the ASFPM CFM exam Wednesday September 20th at the 2017 Annual Conference in Breckenridge, and will conduct a full-day Floodplain Management 101 class on Tuesday the 19th. You do not have to take the class in order to take the exam. You also do not have to take the exam in order to take the class.
- The CFM® program is administered by ASFPM. You will need to apply for the exam and pay ASFPM directly. Click here to find the ASFPM CFM® Exam Application.
- While it is not required that you register for the CASFM conference to take the exam, you are strongly encouraged to do so, because attending the conference will count toward your continuing education requirements. The fee CASFM collects covers expenses such as reproduction costs, facilities charges, & food and refreshments.
- The Floodplain Management 101 course should supplement a solid base of experience in the field of floodplain management, reading, and studying in preparation to take the CFM® exam. The course is not a replacement for studying, participants should not expect to complete this workshop and pass the CFM® Exam without additional study. This workshop is targeted at seasoned professionals with more than two years of experience who have read FEMA 480 and have studied the materials on the CFM® Exam Prep Guide (below) prior to attending:
- CFM®s need to acquire 16 Continuing Education Credits over a two year period to maintain their certification. It is normally possible to obtain these credits by maintaining your membership in ASFPM and CASFM and attending the CASFM annual conference each year. CECs are certified and maintained by ASFPM. CASFM conferences are usually approved by ASFPM for 12 CECs.
For questions about the CFM® Exam/Program (only), please contact Anita Larson, ASFPM Certification Coordinator at CFM@floods.org or 608-828-3000.
