CGMS: Earn Continuing Education

Upon receiving your CGMS, you will then need to work toward earning 60 continuing education credits in the next three years.

Continuing Education credits must be earned through training with subjects related to grants, financial management, audit control, and the grant-making process.

According to generally accepted standards, 50 minutes of training equals one (1) CPE.

General knowledge and ethics-related CPE/CEUs that are not related to grants will not be accepted.

Applicants may accrue grant-related CPEs/CEUs from a variety of sources.

NGMA offers 20 CPEs for attending the entire Annual Grants Training; if you attend the training each year, you will easily earn your 60 CPEs.
