Courses & Exams

A proficient score must be achieved for three (3) exams:

  • Local Government Budgeting
  • Capital Financing
  • Performance Measurement

Periodically, refresher study sessions are offered at the NCLGBA conferences. For review materials, check out the study guide. Exams are currently offered at the biannual NCLGBA conferences or the School of Government, on material from the Budgeting, Capital Financing, and Performance Measures courses. There is no NCLGBA exam for the “Practical Analytic Techniques” course. To date, virtual exams are not an option; however, data gathered from the 2020 membership survey indicates this is an item of interest and it will remain a consideration.

Please see the Certification page for more information about the examination process, cycle, and the certification application form.

The next available exams are still being determined for the spring/summer 2021.
