CGMS: Earn Continuing Education

Upon receiving your CGMS, you will begin working toward earning 60 continuing education credits in the next three years.

Continuing education credits must be earned through trainings that cover 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) Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit.

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

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

NGMA offers 20 CPEs for attending its full Annual Grants Training (AGT) event; if you attend AGT each year, you may easily earn 60 CPEs.
