ASMC is proud to be a member of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence in show of our support of the credentialing community and our commitment to strive for excellence in our CDFM certification program.

ASMC offers the Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) educational program and certification designation to those persons desiring to demonstrate proficiency in the core aspects of defense financial management.

The DoD Authorization Act FY2012 signed by President Obama empowers the Secretary of Defense to “… prescribe professional certification and credential standards” for the defense financial management community. The CDFM is one of the DoD-approved Test-Based Certifications recommended for Certification Levels 2 and 3 of the DoD FM Certification Program.

Benefits to being CDFM certified:

  1. The demands of the times require broad knowledge and analytical skills across a range
    of disciplines. The CDFM certification is fundamental to establishing a broad set of
    financial management skills.
  2. Thirteen percent of DoD FMers hold the CDFM, so it represents a valuable credential
    that impresses selecting officials with the individual¹s drive and initiative. It also enables
    leaders within the DoD to be confident in hiring CDFMs or CDFM-As from anywhere else
    in the DoD knowing that they possess the skills the job requires.
  3. CDFM certification is a differentiator for employers and increases employment
    opportunities within the public and private sector.
