Floodplain Manager Certification

Floodplain Manager Certification: CFM Certification

What is a Floodplain Manager?
From www.floods.org:

The primary goal of the ASFPM Certified Floodplain Manager Program (CFM Program) is to 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 in the United States. This goal will be achieved over time by:

  • Encouraging self-study and attendance at training courses to pass testing to obtain certification · Requiring continuing education as a condition for renewal
  • Encouraging ASFPM chapters, state agencies, and state or regional associations to prepare tests for floodplain managers on specific knowledge of state and regional requirements and legislation
  • Ensuring that the CFMs have an awareness not only of the NFIP, but of comprehensive floodplain management

A second goal of the CFM Program is to increase the prominence of floodplain management in decision-making by local officials and the public. This goal will be achieved on a larger scale and over a longer time frame by:

  • Improving the recognition of floodplain management as a specific discipline
  • Increasing the status of floodplain managers as knowledgeable professionals in a complex and important field
  • Providing greater credibility and visibility for the profession
  • Increasing the educational and training opportunities for floodplain managers through partnerships with other organizations
  • Encouraging CFM’s to contribute to the profession of floodplain management for the betterment of the nation
