This National Flood Insurance Program Review Course is a free, no-cost training for New Jersey municipal, county, and state officials, as well as the general public, looking to expand their knowledge of floodplain management and obtain their Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) certification. This course was developed and sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Bureau of Dam Safety and Flood Control. The NJDEP can also pay for local officials' exam fees.
This course closely follows the FEMA 480 National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Floodplain Management Requirements: Study Guide and Desk Reference for Local Officials (February 2005). The course duration is a month and features two in-person instructional days to complement online self-paced learning. The CFM exam is offered approximately one week after the second in-person instructional day - on Thursday, February 27, 2020. This course started in 2017 and will continue through early 2020 throughout New Jersey. Pre-registration will be required through NJAFM’s website http://www.njafm.org/ prior to the start of the course. Although this course is open to the general public, priority will be given to government officials when registering.
