Certified Public Manager Program

Open enrollment until March 26, 2021. Participants must be nominated by their agencies.

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 virtual Certified Public Manager Program® is open for the 2021 cohort. Participants must have agency and/or supervisor approval to enter the program.
