Become Certified in Government Technology Leadership


This nationally-recognized program equips government technology professionals with the requisite tools to improve and demonstrate your leadership skills to best manage your organization. Because career paths can rapidly change, PTI has expanded the program to allow graduates to be designated as either a:


Certified Government CIO    OR     Certified in Government Technology Leadership


During the course of this twelve-month program (total of 240 contact hours to include three on-site classes, nine virtual class discussions, online coursework) we will address:

  • Leadership styles
  • Communicating for results
  • Managing change
  • Assessing organizational effectiveness

Do I Have to be a CIO to Enroll?

No. Approximately one-third of the students who participate in each class are current CIOs, two-thirds of the students are not—they are typically Deputy CIOs or mid to high level IT professionals.

The Certified Government Chief Information Officer program was a very positive experience that reinforced leadership practices I have encountered throughout my career. The coursework spoke to not only technology, innovation and emerging trends, but also budgeting, human resources and how to interact with other stakeholders once you’ve earned your seat at the table. It was all-encompassing, with an academic connection that enhances the prestige of the certification. Most valuable were the networking opportunities: learning from other information technology professionals to understand the challenges that they are facing. Definitely pursue this certification; you will not regret it!

I highly recommend the Certified Government Chief Information Officer program, which focuses on current major technology topics facing our local governments. Obtaining this certification not only benefits your organization but also demonstrates your willingness to go above and beyond to stay up to date on your skills and the ever-changing technology landscape. In addition to the CGCIO certification, I was afforded the opportunity to thoroughly research and document a potential plan for implementing future opportunities for successful shared services. The benefits my City and I obtained were well worth the price of the class!

The Certified Government Chief Information Officer program was one of the best and most rewarding experiences I have had in my career as an IT professional. My cohort was phenomenal. I learned a lot about myself and I met a lot of great individuals who want to make things better for their organizations. Our monthly meetings were extremely valuable as we shared successes, challenges and failures (opportunity to learn from). I have nothing but great things to say about the program. Before taking this plunge, I reached out to colleagues that had taken the course. The one thing that everyone told me was, “Just take it and you will not be disappointed.” I thank those individuals and pass on the recommendation for others to take the course.
