Certified Public Managers

Hosted and Maintained by:




Public sector management professionals dedicated to the efficient delivery of services to the citizens of the Commonwealth.

The Certified Public Manager (CPM) program began in Georgia in 1976 and was soon endorsed by other states as a model for training and developing professional public managers. The Kentucky CPM Program was first established in 1985 through the Governmental Services Center (GSC) and Kentucky State University (KSU). Today the Program is no longer offered but remains loosely affiliated with the National Certified Public Managers Consortium.  The Society remains hopeful that a new provider will be found and stands ready to assist in the rebirth of the Program.

KSCPM remains committed to the idea that a well-trained public workforce is one that adds value to the Commonwealth in the providing of necessary government services to its citizens.
