Note on program delivery: September and October programs will take place virtually, in Zoom. We anticipate that classes will be held in-person beginning in November, but only if this is in full compliance with public health directives. Participants will be notified in advance if any session must meet virtually. If meeting in-person, programs will be held at Dane County Extension, 5201 Fen Oak Dr., Madison WI.

Current CPM candidates, you may find classes by category: Core | Quantitative Methods | Public Policy | Organizational Management | Resource Management | Personnel Management
