Certificate Program

The North Carolina Government Finance Officers Association sponsors the NC Finance Officers' Certification Program. This program is designed to enhance the public finance profession in North Carolina. Certification is achieved by successfully completing four examinations in the public finance field:

  • Governmental Accounting
  • Financial Planning and Budgeting
  • Cash Management and Investments
  • Financial Management

The examinations will be offered on-line only beginning in late 2017. Certification will still be valid for five years and can be renewed at the end of each subsequent five-year period through accumulation of professional training hours. Additional information regarding the on-line examination process will be forthcoming.
