Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program
The Certified County Commissioner (CCC) Program includes 47 hours of coursework to graduate. Those hours are composed of 32 hours (7 classes) of core classes, 9 hours of electives and 6 hours of electives (which is earned by attending one of four FAC events held around the state).
While all courses may be taken on-line, in-person classes provide valuable peer-to-peer networking opportunities. Accordingly, the ICG Board of Directors require participants to attend least two in-person classes to graduate. These classes are offered at least three times a year.
The program content for each Core course is designed to cover fundamental information necessary to effectively serve as a County Commissioner. To be certified, Commissioners must earn a minimum of 30 credit hours of core curriculum. The Ethics, Public Records & Sunshine Laws course is mandatory. Each core course is equivalent to 6 hours of credit. This program is voluntary, and everyone is automatically enrolled. Credits are allocated as events/classes are attended.
The program content for each Elective/Specialty course is designed to cover fundamental information necessary to effectively serve as a County Commissioner. To be certified, Commissioners must earn a minimum of 9 credit hours of Elective/Specialty Courses. Each course within the specializations is equivalent to 1.5-3 hours of credit.
