|Certified Public Manager Program at UCD|
CPRA has partnered with the Center for Local Government Research and Training in the Buechner Institute for Governance at the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver.
The Certified Public Manager® (CPM) program is a nationally recognized comprehensive management development certification offering participants the skills-based knowledge necessary to improve themselves and their organizations. The CPM is offered to Colorado residents by the Buechner Institute of Governance at the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver.
Courses include two days of in-person instruction, plus online assignments and discussion. Instruction focuses on “real world” problems and situations. The complete CPM program requires 300 hours of structured course work including a capstone project which requires practical applications of skills learned to workplace situations or programmatic challenges. New courses start every other month and participants can begin the program with any course except the capstone. Individuals who complete the CPM certification are eligible for advanced standing in the Masters in Public Administration Program at UCD. The MPA can be completed online, through weekend intensive courses, on the Downtown Denver campus.
Through this partnership, CPRA Members are able participate in the CPM Program in three exclusive ways! All registrations must be completed through the CPRA website.
