Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can you apply for the International certification before you receive state certification for CMC?
A. Yes, although it is highly recommended to get state certification first, as it is the backbone of ICCTFOA.
Q. How long will it take me to become state certified as CMC?
A. It depends on the amount of ICCTFOA classes you are able to attend and how involved you are in the organization; the average period is four years.
