CCFM Certification Maintenance

   Maintaining Your Certification Once Obtained

In order to have the CCFM designation and maintain value to the organization; we want to be sure those with the designation stay actively involved in church facilities management.

If you have had your CCFM Certification for over 3 years, would like to maintain this designation and did not receive a renewal notice click this link to complete CCFM 3 yr Renewal.

Certification will be valid for three (3) years. During this time CCFMs are required to earn a minimum of 120 maintenance points (Avg. 40 pts. / year) in at least three of the following categories. Practice, Continuing Education, Professional Involvement, Development of the Profession.

Development of the Profession (80 points maximum)

Note: Any item may be asked to be verified with documentation.

To maintain their designations every three years CCFMs need to fill out an online form showing activities they performed (and be able to support it with documentation if asked) as well as paying a $75.00 renewal fee. The V.P of Education must receive the maintenance verification any time from three months prior to three months after their anniversary to be considered on time. If submitted three months and one day to six months after the anniversary a $50.00 reinstatement fee must also be sent to the treasurer. If more than six months past, the designation will have expired and the candidate will have to pay the $50.00 reinstatement fee as well as submit and have approved a new research paper to regain the CCFM status.
