|CPM Program at CU Denver|
CPRA has partnered with the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver, to bring professional development opportunities to CPRA members.
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 University of Colorado Denver School of Public Affairs.
The program is comprised of six courses and a capstone project. 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 can use the CPM certification as 6 elective credits in the Master of Public Administration Program at CU Denver. 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 two exclusive ways!
