iGO offers a nationally-recognized certification program, designed to promote excellence and continuing education opportunities for public officials.
iGO members have an opportunity to earn professional credentials through the Certified Public Officials (CPO) Program. Recognizing the need to promote educational standards for the nation’s professional administrators of county elections, court systems, land records and records management, iGO offers this program to members.
Individuals complete an extensive program of continuing education focusing on specific areas of responsibility. Credits can be earned at sessions that are held at iGO conferences or webinars. Certification modules include clerk to board/court administration, elections administration, land records and records management.
Certified Public Official designations are awarded at the iGO Annual Conference, held each summer. Along with the privilege of using the “CPO” designation beside their signature, CPOs also receive a display plaque recognizing achievement as a Certified Public Official.
