Rutgers University Center for Government Services, in cooperation with the New Jersey Association of Counties is pleased to present a program on county administration designed to enhance the operational and functional knowledge of county administrators and professional staff.

The two-day Basic Certificate Program covers essential components in the administration of county government. Sessions on public procurement, management challenges, county fiscal affairs and ethics provide an overview of these important day-to-day functions.

Instructed by experienced professionals in their respective fields, the sessions bring real-life applications and insight to the implementation of daily operations and challenges. This program has been specifically designed to address the needs and interests of managers and administrators working in county government.

The DCA, Division of Local Government Services, has approved continuing credits for QPA, CCPO, CMFO, CCFO, and CPWM recertification.
