Final Exam: Students must pass the Final Exam, which will be posted during Week 10. The Final Exam consists of 50 questions and the passing score is 70%. Students may re-take the Final Exam as many times as needed, but credit will not be given until the passing score is achieved. NOTE: The Final Exam is not the same as the CFCM Certification Exam.

Certification: The CFCM application and exam are separate from this course.
