More information about the CFM exam

The Association of State Floodplain Managers has established a national program for certifying floodplain managers. The ASFPM CFM® Certification exam measures a person's knowledge of a community's responsibilities under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and related floodplain management topics. The program recognizes continuing education and professional development that enhance the knowledge and performance of local, state, federal, and private-sector floodplain managers.
