NM EDGE County College
NM EDGE County College's aim is to foster better government through education. We have drawn on the guidelines of the National Certified Public Manager® Consortium (CPM) to offer the following certification programs through the NM EDGE:
- NM Certified Public Official program requires 18 classes chosen from a selected list of CPM-approved courses, and a mini-essay which demonstrates the application of the competencies learned from participating in these classes.
- NM Certified Public Supervisor program requires completion of 30 NM CPM-approved classes and successful completion of a six-hour assessment where the student demonstrates the application of the competencies learned from participating in these classes.
- NM Certified Public Manager® program requires 60 NM CPM-approved classes, six three-hour assessments, plus a supervised captstone project.
NM EDGE County College also works with affiliates of the New Mexico Association of Counties to develop customized certification programs to meet affiliate-specific needs.
