- To receive CORE certification, participants must complete 9 required courses covering 66 hours. Upon completion, county commissioners achieve the status of “Certified County Commissioner” and are eligible for a $100 monthly stipend from their county.
- To obtain Specialty Track certification, participants must complete eight (8) courses in the track, a minimum of 5 must be primary courses with a maximum of 3 courses that are designated as cross-over courses.
ACCG encourages all county commissioners, as well as appointed officials, regardless of tenure in office or position, to engage in, and continue on a path of, Lifelong Learning. Elected and appointed officials can accomplish this by taking core and specialty track courses offered within the Lifelong Learning Academy (LLA) and/or participating in ACCG workshops, meetings, and conferences. Continuing Education is an investment that will return dividends in the form of better-informed decisions by county officials who pursue excellence through learning.
