CFM Program

CFM Certification

The Association of State Floodplain Mangers (ASFPM) has established a national program for professional certification of floodplain managers. The program recognizes continuing education and professional development that enhance the knowledge and performance of local, state, federal, and private-sector floodplain managers.

The Certified Floodplain Managers Program (CFM Program) has two primary 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.

  • Increase the prominence of floodplain management in decision-making by local officials and the public.
