The NJ Clean Communities Council is partnering with the Rutgers/NJAES Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE) to offer this certification training for Clean Communities program managers. This three-day course will offer in-depth training on programming, statistical reporting, volunteer management and related topics in an informal atmosphere that encourages critical thinking and innovation.

Following the 3-day training session, attendees will be required to submit a 3-5 page paper on developing an effective Clean Communities program. Papers will be reviewed, evaluated, and filed in the Clean Communities Office for future reference.

Individuals who are currently certified as Clean Communities program managers are invited to take one or more of the single day sessions to earn recertification credits (six credits per day).
