The Institute’s training program for local governments includes a variety of workshops for personnel at all levels. The program is designed to provide participants with training programs to enhance the management skills and decision-making abilities of public officials and non-profit personnel.

The IOG also works with other entities in providing specialized training to our constituents. Such programs include a two-day Records Management Certification course offered in conjunction with the Florida Institute of Government; and certification and recertification classes for code enforcement personnel in our eight county service area in cooperation with the Florida Association of Code Enforcement and the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government at the University of Central Florida.

The IOG offers its training workshops on a contract basis with individual state and local governments or through open-enrollment programs.  The institute’s staff is always pleased to tailor programs to meet the individual needs of our constituents and are constantly adding new topics to our roster of classes.  We are always pleased to coordinate these or other classes tailored to your specific needs.   The IOG’s staff will be pleased to meet with you to find out what we can do for you to help you meet your professional development training needs!
