cfm_logoAs part the Department of Land and Natural Resources’ (DLNR) annual Floodplain Managers Conference scheduled for August 16th and 17th, 2017, the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) Certified Floodplain Managers (CFM®) Exam will be offered at the conference. In order to take the CFM exam, you must complete and submit the CFM Program Application Package directly to the ASFPM. The forms are available on the ASFPM website under the Certification Program tab. The fee for taking the exam is $100 for ASFPM members and $450 for non-members. You may submit an application for ASFPM membership ($150) at the same time as applying to take the CFM® exam.  In order to be accepted to take the Certified Floodplain Managers Exam at the conference, you must submit your completed application along with the appropriate fee to ASFPM by August 3rd, 2017 (2 weeks prior to exam date). No walk-ins will be allowed unless authorized by the ASFPM Executive office.

DLNR will be holding the exam at 2454 South Beretania Street, 5th floor, in the Manoa Grand Ballroom, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on August 17th 2017.  Parking is $6 with validation.  The Floodplain Manager Conference is scheduled to end at 11:30 AM on the 17th so there will be time to get lunch (on your own) and return to the testing room at 1:00 pm.  The exam will begin promptly at 1:00 pm.
