This week the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC), the premier educational society for financial managers working in the defense community, announced the release of a new continuing professional education (CPE) management tool. The CPE management tool allows ASMC members to manage and track their continuing education experience using the online tool.
Because ASMC provides a significant number of professional education services to members of the defense financial management community it made sense for the society to provide this valuable tool to its members. ASMC has over 5,400 active Certified Defense Financial Managers (CDFM) who have continuing education requirements and this new CPE management tool will help them to track and ultimately meet their bi-annual education requirements.
Said Alvin Tucker, ASMC Executive Director, “With this new tool ASMC both provides valuable assistance to members tracking their CPE, and enables identification of the value of educational offerings provided by ASMC to the FM community.”
During the initial launch of the CPE management tool, ASMC imported over 80,000 CPE hours from the two most recent Professional Development Institute (PDI) education programs. The PDI is the largest educational gathering of financial managers working in the defense industry with over 120 education sessions. ASMC estimates that over 10,000 of its members will use this online tool to manage their continuing education needs.
ASMC members can access the CPE management tool in the member portal.

This is a great feature. Will the records from PDI On-line and the Quarterly ASMC Journal exams also be imported?
Bob, thank you for your comment. We do plan to integrate a feature where all online learning CPE’s earned will automatically be added to the CPE tool. Because our learning center is hosted by a third party “Bluesky” we need to work with their software engineers to develop the connection and we look to that happening in later this year.
On a related issue, PDI On-Line Workshops and the Quarterly ASMC Journals cannot be accessed by computers at work. I can only access them at home due to firewalls.
Is it possible for the site to include a total of the hours achieved and the hours still required for my specific two year requirement.
