NM EDGE, a service of New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service, is a program designed to provide a comprehensive course of study to administrators, managers, elected officials, and staff in local, state, tribal, and national government, through which participants can acquire and apply the best practices and theory to their management behaviors and strategies using the highest professional standards.
The NM CPM curriculum is a natural fit for NM Public Managers wanting to pursue continuing education that includes national recognition.
The NM Certified Public Manager Program® (NM CPM) is the feature program of the NM EDGE. Other programs include the NM Certified Public Official Program (NM CPO) and the NM Certified Public Supervisor Program (NM CPS). Each of these programs offer classes from the core NM CPM curriculum and each builds on the previous level towards completion of the NM CPM.
Additionally, the NM EDGE offers certification programs through its County College, a program developed with New Mexico Association of Counties, and specific to county offices such as NM County Assessors, NM County Clerks, NM County Commissioners, NM County Treasurers, GIS Professionals, Detention Officers & Administrators and Cooperative Extension Service Professionals.
Furthermore, the NM EDGE also administers The NM CAPE (Certified Advocated in Public Ethics) Program which is designed to provide New Mexico public officials with a comprehensive course of study in public service ethics including how ethics relate to New Mexico law, Decision-making, Public-private partnerships, Stewardship, Conflict of interest, Appearances v. reality and much more.
