Culberson County Commissioner Adrian Norman was honored on Oct. 7 for his completion of a voluntary advanced course on county government titled Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum.
Norman received a Certificate of Achievement from the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas (CJCAT), sponsor of the Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum Program, at the CJCAT Annual Conference in Abilene conducted Oct. 5-8.
While state law requires 16 hours per year of continuing education for County Commissioners, the Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum Program provides for certification upon completion of a comprehensive course of study as follows: Phase I Orientation – 16-plus hours; Phase II Basics – 16 hours; Phase III Electives – 32 hours.
The CJCAT, a statewide organization with more than 1,200 active members, promotes the interests of county government and provides the opportunity for statutorily required continuing education.
