In an effort to provide as much information to you as possible, we have recently posted on our website the descriptions of every course in the Certified County Finance Officer (CCFO) Program.
CCFO candidates must successfully complete a series of 11 small-group courses that will provide individualized attention to various county financial management topics. The 11-course curriculum is designed to ensure that every county finance officer is capable of performing the fundamental tasks associated with their position and to allow CCFOs to learn advanced skills required to enhance their abilities to perform their official duties.
Courses cover various topics related to county finance including budgeting, accounting, debt management, internal controls, financial reporting, and purchasing, among others. This program is designed to 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.
