What is the value of a Coach Led course? You can read the material, take the quizzes and study for the assessments all on your own, but having an instructor helps you to focus on the right material, explain concepts that may be new to you, and help you stay accountable. We will stick with you through the entire process from instruction through your assessments. We provide you with test taking strategies, tips, and practice questions all to help you achieve your goal of earning your ProFM credential.
What if I miss a class? While we encourage students to attend every class, if you miss a class and we are notified in advance of the class, we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
What is the final assessment for the ProFM? There are 2 final assessment tests for the ProFM, one is knowledge based it as 75 multiple choice questions, the second is focused on practical application of the material and has 50 questions. Both tests are timed and are inclusive of material from all 5 modules of the Body of Knowledge. Tests can be taken until you pass and passing one test is not dependent on being permitted to take or pass the other first.
How much does it cost to take the exams? There are no additional application, administration, or exam fees. Tests may be taken as many times as necessary to pass for a period of one year after registering for the program.
Once I pass the exams, how do I receive my ProFM Credential? You will be asked to register your credential and confirm your contact information for an official ProFM certificate to be delivered to you. Once registered, you will be able to save and print a proof of course completion as you await your official certificate, and you may immediately begin using “ProFM” in their signature, resume, and CV.
How long is my ProFM credential valid? The ProFM credential is valid for three (3) years from date on which you pass the ProFM final assessment. To renew, ProFM credential holders must earn a minimum of 45 continuing education Renewal Credits and pay a nominal fee of $99.
