The self-study program (accessed via the IOFM.com E-Learning Center) comes with access to the e-textbook (Master Guide to 1099 Compliance), on-demand 4-hour training video, one practice exam and 3 attempts at the final exam (50 multiple-choice questions, 60 minutes, graded pass/fail).

IOFM does not offer CEUs for Certification classes. We know that earning your Certification takes a lot of time! However, the nature of continuing education is that it is additional training you do after you are certified in order to keep up with the standards set by the program. Therefore, earning your credentials does not count towards your CEU requirement. If you already hold an IOFM Certification, you may count subsequent live Certification classes for 6 CEUs towards that previously-held Certification.

Certification is maintained by paying a $150 recertification fee and passing a biannual exam
