The Comptroller of the Treasury and CTAS have developed the Certified County Finance Officer (CCFO) program that will provide Tennessee’s county financial officers an opportunity to learn about accounting and financial reporting principles, understand how county governments are structured in Tennessee, and enhance their skills in order to carry out their responsibilities for the fiscal affairs of their county or department. CTAS administers the educational program and testing required to achieve the CCFO designation. The Comptroller’s Office has been designated as the certification authority.
How to Enroll
To enroll in the CCFO program, you need to create an account on the Comptroller’s CCFO website at https://apps.cot.tn.gov/CCFO. Please be aware that you will need to have an e-mail account to sign up. The Comptroller recommends using a personal email account for account creation. Click the "Register" link at the top of the webpage to create an account.
