You can recertify your CDFM by logging on to your ASMC account and clicking on "Recertify CDFM".
If you do not recertify by your recertification deadline, your certification will lapse, your name will be removed from the ASMC website, and a late and/or reinstatement fee will be assessed.
I will not have enough CPEs before my recertification deadline. Can I apply for a recertification extension?
A 90-day recertification extension is available for those who need additional time, but it must be requested BEFORE your recertification deadline. Request this extension by marking the "CDFM Extension" option on a CDFM Recertification Form and emailing the completed form to email@example.com.
Your suspended certification can be reactivated by sending proof of earning 80 CPEs since the start date of the lapsed certification cycle to firstname.lastname@example.org and then paying the missed recertification fee plus a $50 late fee in your ASMC account.
