It is important to complete STEP 1 and verify that you meet the eligibility requirements BEFORE paying the non-refundable enrollment fee.

CDFM Certification Agreement
The act of enrolling in the CDFM Program indicates the certificant’s agreement to abide by the ASMC Pledge of Professionalism and the CDFM Certification Agreement.

Initial Enrollment
Now is the perfect time to enroll in the Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) Certification Program! OUSD(C) released a Memorandum announcing the CDFM as one of five professional certifications that serves as an “Alternative Professional Certification” to any of the three DFMCP certification levels. This exception to policy means you can now pursue the CDFM in lieu of the DoD DFMCP requirement—giving you a transferable, test-based credential that can be used anywhere in Federal service or the private sector.

With a two-year eligibility window,  newly released practice test, and at-home testing options, the program is designed to suit your needs and schedule. Demonstrate your mastery of financial management competencies and be prepared to lead your organization into the future. Take the first step for becoming a CDFM today!
