FACTOR provides high quality and comprehensive educational opportunities for county commissioners. We have continued to build our educational offerings over the last 20 years and in 2012, we branded our education certification programs,
FAC + Educator = FACTOR.
"A well educated commissioner makes for a better public servant. The training and education that I have received from FAC is invaluable."
"The ACC program was very well run and informative. In provided a unique opportunity for commissioners to obtain an understanding of counties very different from their own. I would recommend the program to all commissioners."

"No matter how much you think you know - the ACC Classes bring you back to reality that you still have a lot to learn!"
"The ACC Program was great on many levels; getting to know fellow commissioners, working and learning together on complex problem solving. We learned creative methods to solve difficult issues!"
"The FAC Programs are opportunities to take classroom learning and practical experience of commissioners from all around Florida and improve the ability and experience of each commissioner through synergy."
"FAC’s education programs were extremely beneficial to me as a new commissioner. The complexity of the position and the diverse subjects involving the county commission were clearly communicated in both the CCC and the ACC Programs."
"Knowledge is Power! CCC and ACC empowers county commissioners with the knowledge and tools needed to make us effective servants to our citizens."
