The League has expanded the Certified Municipal Official Training Program to include LIVE webinar training and ANYTIME training. For mayors and councilmembers, webinar training and successful completion of a test on material presented will meet credit hours in the Basic, Advanced or Emeritus programs. Need core curriculum hours? Watch for core curriculum training offered by webinars. You can ask questions live during the training or submit questions by email to our legal staff following a live or anytime training. Our in-person League events are valuable and we’ll always offer them, but online and anytime training will have a place too. We think you will find the addition of webinars a helpful resource to provide training for elected officials and municipal personnel. We hope to “see” you online soon!

How it works:

  • Watch for the online training schedule through ALM’s website, E-newsletter, Alabama Municipal Journal and Blast Emails.
  • Find the registration link in the information received or on the ALM website.
  • Register for the training.
  • Receive an email with the training link and a reminder email at the time of the training.
