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 ManagerĀ® 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.

New Mexico Certified IT Professional Curriculum Announced
The NM EDGE and the NM IT Curriculum Committee, in collaboration with our Strategic Partners, are pleased to announce the completion of the New Mexico Certified IT Professional curriculum! This newly developed certification will be added to our New Mexico Public Sector Specializations program, which is open to all public servants in State, Municipal, County, and General Public Service Sectors.
Please join us in offering a special thanks to each of the IT Curriculum Committee Members who gave freely of their time and expertise to craft this certification. Without their diligence this project would never have reached completion! Thanks, too, to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for offering the use of their IT Curriculum Model for our tweaking, to Laura Gonzales for securing UNC's permission, and to the New Mexico Association of Counties for sponsoring lunch at one of our curriculum development meetings. This was truly a group effort with many contributing to the successful completion of this challenging and important project.
Please the following link to view the new certification class requirement checklist AND the following to view a copy of our class catalogs showing class descriptions for these classes.
We anticipate launching classes later this year and will keep you posted when we do!
