The Maryland CPM program is open to employees in federal, state and local government organizations, quasi-governmental organizations, and nonprofit organizations in Maryland. Elected officials are also eligible to participate in the program.

Participants must be responsible for supervising people (formally or functionally), or managing major projects, or managing major programs.

Participants must have their supervisor’s permission to participate in the program. Throughout, participants will share workplace issues. Additionally, participants will apply what they have learned to address a real-world challenge faced by their organization in the form of a capstone project.

The material is taught at the college level, but a college degree is not required for admission into the program.
