If you do not recertify your CDFM by the deadline, your certification goes into Suspended Status, your name is removed from the ASMC website, and a $50 recertification late fee is applied. After 90 days in Suspended status, your certification goes into Inactive Status and the late fee is changed to a $100 reactivation fee.
Note that if events beyond your control, such as a deployment or a medical situation, interfered with your ability to recertify on time, you may request a waiver of some or all of the reactivation requirements by emailing email@example.com and providing documentation.
Suspended Status Reactivation Requirements
- Pay recertification fee
- Pay $50 late fee
- Submit proof of 80 CPEs
Inactive Status Reactivation Requirements
- Pay one recertification fee ($25 ASMC members / $45 non-members)
- Pay $100 reactivation fee
- Submit proof of 80 CPEs total since beginning of lapsed certification cycle
If circumstances beyond your control, such as a serious medical condition or deployment, prevented you from earning enough CPEs to recertify, you may request a one-time waiver of some or all of the CPE requirements by sending documentation of the situation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
