Applications for the 2020-2021 course are now open. Applications are due on June 8th. 

The CIO Certification Program is a 10-month course that lays the foundation for assessing and addressing some of the most critical issues facing IT leadership in K-12, local and state government. The purpose of this program is to equip leaders with the requisite tools to manage and improve their organizational technology assets.

Each broad topic will incorporate specific local government issues and draw on participant experience to provide both theoretical and practical applied knowledge to the challenges. Case studies, exercises, and guest speakers will be included.

The cost of the CGCIO program  is $3,750. The program meets for two consecutive days each month beginning in August and ending in June with graduation.
