News Date


Image of text that reads "Reminder: commissioners must complete any outstanding training hours by August 31, 2023."

This is a gentle reminder about the county commissioner training requirements established in 2018. The State of Tennessee, in T.C.A. § 5-5-113, requires county commissioners elected or appointed after April 12, 2018, to complete an orientation training and 7 hours of continuing education every year for 8 years.

Important things to know:

  • Anyone can complete their past due hours before August 31, 2023, and be listed as complete on the Comptroller’s website.
  • If you need to know how many hours you have, please contact CTAS at

The annual continuing education requirement can be met in various ways, including attending educational sessions at TCSA conferences and TCCA regional meetings, attending CTAS training classes, completing online training provided by CTAS, and attending other professional development approved by CTAS.

More information is available on our County Commissioner Training webpage.
