CFM® Refresher Course
The CFM® Exam measures knowledge of a community's responsibilities under the NFIP and related floodplain management topics. For those preparing to take the CFM® Exam, this course is a one day refresher study workshop. This course should supplement a solid base of experience in the field of floodplain management, reading, and self study methods in preparation to take the National CFM® exam. This full-day review 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 from ASFPM's website prior to attending.
