Accredited Chapter CFM Programs
The Association of State Floodplain Managers has established a national program for certifying floodplain managers. This program recognizes continuing education and professional development that enhances the knowledge and performance of local, state, federal and private-sector floodplain managers.
By agreement with ASFPM, the following six states have a chapter accredited to administer and manage the national exam and program directly. Generally the national certification will be administered by ASFPM, based on your permanent home address, unless you reside in one of the six accredited chapter states, at which point you must go through the chapter program. Chapters that are accredited by ASFPM are entitled to use "ASFPM accredited" on any program documents including certificates. States with an ASFPM accredited CFM® Program will determine the conditions for certification in that state. A reciprocity policy has been established for CFMs moving their permanent home address to another state.
