Attaining CSFM status requires field managers to accumulate 40 points. The points are awarded for a combination of education & experience. Once the 40 points are accumulated, there is a certification exam that can be taken at the National STMA Conference & Exhibition each January or by a "proctor". Ohio State has proctor status. Any turf manager in Ohio that has accumulated the 40 points and is ready to take the CSFM exam but cannot go to the national conference should contact the OSU turf program.
