Launched in 1996, the Certified County Commissioner Program is a voluntary program of study designed for county commissioners to learn information and enhance skills relevant to their duties and responsibilities. Courses are taught by a team of experts, which includes university faculty, government officials, professional speakers, FAC members and FAC staff.
CCC courses are offered year round at FAC conferences and may now be completed in 6-12 months. CCC participants must complete a total of 45 hours of course work. This includes 30 hours of core, 9 hours of elective and 6 hours of continuing education courses. Completion of the course requirements results in the designation of Certified County Commissioner. The graduation ceremony is typically held during FAC’s Annual Conference. To date, 460 commissioners have completed the CCC program.
