We will be offering two Maryland Certified Public Manager® classes ― online via Zoom,  (Cohort 10) and i (Cohort 11).

For FY 2023, we have a limited number of pre-paid spots available for of managers in state and local governments to attend the Maryland Certified Public Manager® program at no cost. This means that the $6,500 program fee will be waived for selected participants.

Candidates will be selected based on meeting program requirements and ensuring representation throughout the state of Maryland and within organizational levels.

Employees of Washington Council of Governments member organizations should apply to the Washington Council of Governments Certified Public Manager® Program. Employees who do not think that program meets their needs, can be considered for the Maryland Certified Public Manager® Program. Please contact Diane Geiman, Schaefer Center Training Manager at for more information on this process.
