The purpose of The Certified Municipal Revenue Officers (CMRO) program is to improve participants’ professional, administrative and fiscal skills. Those working in this area face increasingly complex tasks and this program is designed to improve their skills as they serve their communities. The CMRO certification comprises 80 contact hours of instruction over two years. Each training institute provides 20 contact hours. Two training sessions are available each year. They consist of two and a half days each and are offered in the spring and fall. The program is designed to allow participants to begin training at any time after completing all four sessions, which do not have to be taken in consecutive order. A detailed list of classes needed to graduate can be found at Certification Institute for Revenue Officers.
