The Nevada Certified Public Manager (NVCPM) Program curriculum covers the full spectrum of management and leadership skills and competencies, beginning with self-awareness and individual performance and gradually expanding to broader organizational issues including agency challenges, budget and strategic performance and public policy. NVCPM training is participant centered and experience based. Emphasis is placed on small group activities and discussions, as well as a balance between theory and real world applications.
The NVCPM Program also strives to make professional public managers aware of the ethical standards and social responsibility necessary for them to act humanely and responsively within an intergovernmental system. Beside significant levels of on-the-job study, the program engages participants in formal assessments, testing, and on-the-job applications.
