Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM)
A significant portion of the federal budget is devoted to the defense sector. As a result, the field of defense financial management is both demanding and complex covering a multitude of interrelated disciplines and intertwined with a highly developed body of codified fiscal law. The CDFM Program established by ASMC provides formal recognition to those persons who clearly demonstrate proficiency in the core aspects of defense financial management. Indviduals who receive their CDFMs are widely reconginzed throughout the Department of Defense for their expertise as professional financial managers.

Chapter members who complete their CDFMs between 1 July - 30 June of any given year will need to forward documented evidence of the CDFM award through their organizational Professional Certification Program Coordinator.

If you are now a CDFM:
Please note these changes as some of your colleagues, still in candidate status or planning to enroll in the CDFM Program, may approach you with questions concerning the process to register for an examination. Please feel free to share the attached material with them.
If you are now a CDFM candidate:
The Candidate ID number that you received in your welcome letter remains valid, but you will need to follow the guidance in the attached sample candidate welcome letter to register for an examination. Please note that the examination site, Prometric Testing Center, remains the same. However, instead of calling Prometric to register, pay for, and schedule an examination module, CDFM candidates will now visit the ASMC Certification web site (http://www.asmconline.org/certification/cdfm-information/) to select an examination module and pay the required fees. After registering for a module examination, the candidate will be able to print his or her Authorization Letter that contains the directions for calling the Prometric Testing Center and scheduling a time to take the examination.
Please note that the telephone number contained in the Authorization Letter for the Prometric Testing Center may be different from the telephone number you previously called to schedule other module examinations. The revised process will provide benefits both to the management of the CDFM program and to the individual CDFM Candidate.
