As the DoD continues to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of financial management operations, it is increasingly important that the entire financial management workforce understands the context and contributions of members of each career field. When each team member comprehends the big picture, FM operations become more cohesive. This course will help you gain this comprehension while introducing you to the competencies that must be mastered to earn the prestigious Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) credential.
