You were elected. Now what? OSU Extension’s County Government Training Program helps
county government officers and their staffs learn how to perform mandated duties more
effectively, efficiently and with greater knowledge and awareness. County personnel
are partners in this effort. They serve on advisory boards, help create educational
materials and sometimes participate directly in instruction.
Certification programs range from three-level programs for County Commissioners, County
Clerks and County Treasurers to a single level of certification for Court Clerks,
County Sheriffs and County Assessors. Course dates can be found on the CTP Training
OSU Extension’s County Government Training Program benefits from the oversight and
direction provided by the Commission on County Government Personnel Education and
Training, as mandated in the Oklahoma State Statutes.
Electronic handbooks are available in pdf format and may be opened, downloaded and
saved to the user’s personal computer or other device. Also available is the Purchasing
Handbook for Oklahoma Counties.
Thanks to active collaboration between the County Government Training Program and
individual county officers, state agencies and OSU Extension specialists, answers
to frequently asked questions are readily available.
