The Goals of the Certified Public Manager Program (CPM)

The Certified Public Manager (CPM) program is a nationally-recognized, comprehensive training and development program for public sector managers at all levels of state and local government. Today, many public agencies are moving away from traditional management and embracing transformational leadership.  The CPM program incorporates state-of-the-art theory with practical applications.

The vision of the CPM program is to create reflective practitioners who apply advanced managerial techniques
to real-world problems, and to foster learning organizations that use new knowledge to improve the way they
govern.

Florida’s CPM Success Story

Florida has one of the oldest and most active CPM programs in the country. The Florida State University created
the Florida CPM Program in 1979.  Many government agencies have chosen CPM as their primary method for
training current and future leaders.  The CPM program has worked in more than 20 state agencies, over 60 city
or county governments, and with some 15 constitutional officers.

In 1994, the Florida Governor and Cabinet designated the CPM program as a “preferred management
development program
” and encouraged all state agencies to participate.

What is taught in the CPM Program?

Florida’s CPM program consists of eight four-day training sessions (Levels 1-8).  In addition to the classes,
participants are also required to complete assignments and exams for each class.  CPM training is experiential
based, with an emphasis on small group activities and a balance between theory and practice.  

The curriculum covers the full spectrum of management, beginning with individual performance and gradually
expanding to broader organizational issues and public policy.  CPM recommends taking the levels in sequence,
as subsequent levels build upon the knowledge and experiences of preceding levels and assignments.

Can I earn college credits for completing the CPM program?

The Askew School of Public Administration and Policy at Florida State University will award three
under­graduate or graduate credit hours for completing the CSM (Levels 1-4) and three additional hours for
completing the CPM (Levels 1-8).
