CPM – Schedules & Locations

The NJ CPM Program is held in various locations throughout New Jersey. We anticipate offering CPM courses at the locations and dates below. Each cohort needs a minimum of 15 students in order to be operational. Additional locations can be added if there is interest. Starting dates are approximate until the schedule is posted.

NEW FOR 2020-2021

The New Jersey Certified Public Manager (CPM) Program is currently offered virtually. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in consideration of our students’ need for flexibility, the program has been modified. We are very committed to providing a safe and high-quality CPM program. Our goal is to foster engaging learning instances, as well as create opportunities for students to work independently, and with their classmates and instructors.

The class duration has been adjusted to half-day morning sessions (3 hours). However, to meet the National CPM Consortium program hour requirement, students will also be expected to participate in small group activities and discussion boards in addition to the AM sessions.

Note: Our new program design will allow us to pivot to hybrid learning, when permitted. At that time we will offer the option of in-person or virtual participation. In-person cohorts will follow current guidance from the Governor's office, the Department of Health, Civil Service Commission, Rutgers University, and the facilities in which we operate.
