Professional Certification Designations


The CFLM designation is open to supervisors who are desirous of gaining an internationally accredited designation that validates their status as effective supervisors.

About the Programme
The five day (30 hr.) review session is designed for qualified supervisors to successfully pass the examination for the CFLM designation. It is also designed to enhance the skills of the participant supervisor in such vital areas as: managing people, managing operations, managing relationships, and leadership

Steps in Obtaining Certification

Step 1 - Practical Experience Requirement
Before applying for the CFLM programme, you need to ensure that you meet the experience requirement set by CSAJ Board. The CFLM designation is open only to working supervisors. Candidates work through a job performance checklist with their supervisors. The CSAJ standards for each area of performance are printed on the checklist, allowing candidates to practice the tasks and master the required skills.

Step 2 - Review Session
After the candidate has met the practical experience requirement, he/she is now ready to prepare for the theoretical aspect of the certification. This is a five-day (30 hr.) review session that focuses on supervisory effectiveness. An easy-to-use CFLM Review Guide will be provided for each candidate prior to the review session to give them time to become familiar with the material.

Step 3 - Theory Examination
The day after the five-day Review Session is exam day. The exam will be three hours. It will be a multiple choice examination comprising 150 questions. Candidates would need to obtain a pass mark of at least 60% to be successful.

Step 4 - Certification
Certification will be granted to those candidates passing the examination. They will be awarded CSAJ's CFLM designation. Candidates who fail will be given two more chances to re-sit the examination at a small cost.

Re-certification Programme
Once certified you will automatically be registered in a re-certification programme. Every five (5) years professionals will be re-certified based on professional accomplishments. You will be issued with a new CSAJ lapel pin and certificate of designation.

What does the Certification Fee cover?
Fees include course materials, CSAJ lapel pin with appropriate designation, certificate for those who qualify and reach the 60% passing score, review session and examination session.
