The Certified Public Manager ® (CPM) Program is an in-depth, comprehensive, competency-based, nationally certified development program for middle managers from state and local government organizations.
The core CPM Program is an intensive 14-month curriculum, with classes beginning in July. Approximately twelve classroom days (80 contact hours) are divided across four CPM instructional modules. Additionally, 120+ hours are required outside the classroom sessions to complete online courses, pre/post class assignments and a CPM project. Completion of one prerequisite course (Advanced Skills for Managers (formerly known as Managing Effective Performance - MEP)OR Supervision for Managers and Professionals OR Introduction to Supervision) as well as several co-requisite training courses provide the final 100 instructional hours, for a CPM Program total of 300 hours. All classroom sessions are held at the Learning and Development Center located at 101 West Peace Street in Raleigh, NC.
