The County Officials Certificate Training Program (COCTP) is a comprehensive training program administered by CTAS.
COCTP is designed to provide specialized, technical and managerial training to elected officials and their employees in order to help them run their office more effectively. It also offers a comprehensive review of county government. CTAS believes that a broader understanding of the mechanics of county government will afford COCTP graduates a better knowledge of the county as an entity, which will help them to better serve their constituency. Graduates of COCTP will obtain a thorough understanding of county government and be designated with the title of Certified Public Administrator.
CTAS requires a passing score of 70% to receive credit for both our classroom and online training.
A note about online training: There is an option for online classes to “Visit all content”, however, COCTP credit will not be granted under this option. Please start all online training with the Pre-Test in order to receive your credit.
CORE classes will be open for registration approximately one month prior to the date of the class. We will send an email advertising for the class when it opens for registration. We appreciate your patience as we prepare your training classes.
