Certified Public Manager Program

The Certified Public Manager® Program is an internationally accredited, comprehensive management development program specifically designed to prepare public service employees for management and leadership careers. The National CPM Consortium establishes accreditation standards and monitors member programs. Only accredited programs are authorized to award the CPM designation.

In 2017, HCM began revamping the CPM program to better meet the needs of current state employees. The new CPM program’s first cohort began in March 2019 with a pre-scheduled structure that allows participants to attend courses designed to provide applicable knowledge, deliver hands on learning experiences and complete the program in only 18 months. 

Enrollment for the next cohort begins in October. As always, participants must be nominated by their agency and approved by their supervisor to enter the program. When enrollment opens, you can visit this page for a link to instructions.
