The City Officials Training Center is a voluntary continuing education program administered by KLC.  City officials can complete education levels by attending KLC training events and submitting outside training credit from other municipal training.  There is no charge to enroll.  If you attend at KLC training, your credit is tracked automatically.

Certificate levels in the City Officials Training Center (COTC) are now easier to achieve!  Each level still requires 30 hours, but the category requirements have been removed with the exception of one hour of ethics training.  Please note:  all courses approved for the City Officials Training Center program are also approved for the Training Incentive Program (HB 119). 

Level I - Achievement in City Governance

Level II - Excellence in City Governance

Level III - Master of City Governance

Masters Maintenance

Each level can be achieved with up to 10 hours of approved outside credit.  Credits are valid for three years.
