NM EDGE and County College
The NM EDGE, a service of New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service, is a program designed to provide a comprehensive course of study to administrators, managers, elected officials, and staff in local, state, tribal, and national government, through which participants can acquire and apply the best practices and theory to their management behaviors and strategies using the highest professional standards. http://nmedge.nmsu.edu
The NM Certified Public Manager Program® (NM CPM) is the feature program of the NM EDGE. Other programs include the NM Certified Public Official Program (NM CPO) and the NM Certified Public Supervisor Program (NM CPS). Each of these programs offer classes from the core NM CPM curriculum and each builds on the previous level towards completion of the NM CPM.
Additionally, the NM EDGE offers certification programs through its County College, a program developed with New Mexico Association of Counties, and specific to county offices such as NM County Assessors (NMCPAO), NM County Treasurers (CNMTO), NM County Health Professionals (NMCCHCO), County Clerks and County Commissioners.
An excellent resource are the e-handbooks for county elected officials: Assessor’s Handbook, Clerk’s Handbook, Commissioner’s Handbook, Sheriff’s Handbook, and Treasurer’s Handbook. The NM CPM curriculum is a natural fit for NM Public Managers wanting to pursue continuing education that includes national recognition.
