  • The NH Floodplain Management Program will be holding a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) exam on December 13th from 1 to 4pm in Concord, NH for those interested in obtaining CFM certification. The Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) established the CFM program to recognize continuing education and professional development that enhances the knowledge of local, state, federal and private-sector floodplain managers. In order to take the CFM exam, you must complete the CFM application available on the ASFPM website and submit it to the address listed on the form. The fee for applying for the CFM certification is $100 for ASFPM members and $470 for non-members. You may submit an application for ASFPM membership ($160 for an individual) at the same time as applying for the exam and receive the member rate. ASFPM members also receive a discounted biennial fee for the CFM renewal. ASFPM also provides study guides to help you prepare for the exam which can be found on this page.
