In 2014 the International FDM leaders established criteria for International Certification, also referred to as IC. A list of questions to be used was made and shared with the three organizations. The requirements are international requirements but the courses and exams must all be within one international organization (AFDMA, EFDMA or FAA). Practitioners are welcome to take courses outside of their organization but they will not count toward eligibility to take the IC exam. The overseeing organization is FDM GO.
Requirements to sit for the exam given by AFDMA:
- Complete at least one each of all 3 modules presented by AFDMA approved instructors.
- Practice for at least one year following the completion of the third module.
- Be a member in good standing of AFDMA.
- Apply to take the exam and pay the current fee of $495.
If you are ready to sit for the exam, please email Holly Macriss, AFDMA Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Verification of completion of all three modules and AFDMA membership will be made once registration is received. If there are any discrepancies, we will contact you.
