On-Site and Virtual Live CGFM Training Program

AGA's unique training program provides a foundation in all areas of government financial management and deals with all levels of U.S. government—federal, state and local. It is greatly beneficial for individuals new to the government financial management arena or those looking to expand their knowledge of this field. It also helps candidates prepare for the three Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) examinations.

  • Provide your staff with a comprehensive grasp of government financial management.
  • Help them maintain their continuing professional education (CPE). 
  • Give your staff the tools they need to succeed in the field of government financial management.
