The Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM®)

The Mark of Excellence in Federal, State
and Local Government

CGFM is a professional certification recognizing the unique skills and special knowledge required of today’s government financial managers. It covers governmental accounting, auditing, financial reporting, internal controls and budgeting at the federal, state and local levels.

Do you want to expand your professional opportunities and skill sets or distinguish yourself from others in this competitive work environment? If you answered "yes," then the Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) is the certification to obtain. AGA members who believe they are on the high end of the profession, or want to be on the "fast track" toward getting there, need a credential that shows they are qualified and have the skills to lead. The CGFM does this like no other credential.
