CMP LICENSEE PARTNER
See all courses
What is the Licensee program?
The Institute for Court Management (ICM) makes its certification programs available at reduced rates through a Licensee arrangement. As a Licensee, you have your staff qualified and certified to teach ICM courses for you. You also administer the courses locally, making site arrangements and providing course materials from master sets purchased from ICM. Both levels of certification are available: Certified Court Manager (CCM) and Certified Court Executive (CCE). Those who complete the CCE courses through a Licensee program are still eligible for the Fellows program.

Course Certification Requirements
ICM has a policy that all participants take an active role in the course and demonstrate their engagement as well as their competency with the materials taught. This is demonstrated through participation in class discussions as well as class exercises. ICM also has a strict attendance policy in order for participants to receive ICM certification, and to ensure the investment of CMP Licensees. ICM has developed a set of user-friendly protocols to allow CMP Licensees to apply for certification of those attending CMP Licensee sponsored ICM courses. The CMP Licensee online site created by ICM must be used for uploading the required documents.
Certification is available to participants attending a full 2.5-day, 16-hour ICM course with active participant engagement with exercises and application of concepts. In order for participants to receive ICM certification, the faculty teaching the course must attend a faculty development training program offered by ICM to be certified as ICM Faculty or a faculty development program approved by ICM. To ensure that in the delivery of the courses faculty employ the Kolb learning styles model and Experiential Learning Theory (ELT), class size is limited to 50 participants.
Professional Faculty Requirements
ICM expects its entire faculty to meet certain criteria including: training course participants in the NACM Core® embedded in all course curricula, demonstrating ethical behavior and conformance with procedural processes embraced in the CMP Licensee agreement, and having subject matter expertise (SME) in the courses that they teach.
All CCM and CCE courses underwent an initial comprehensive curriculum development and review process. Each course curriculum was developed, reviewed and approved by a minimum of thirty-two court or education experts in a four-stage process: content design and development; content design and development review; judicial educator review to ensure adoption of Kolb Experiential Learning Theory (ELT) methods; State court administrator review to ensure applicability in today’s courts. Course revisions include feedback from participants, faculty, and subject matter experts; review by NACM Past Presidents; and design and content development by ICM staff curriculum developers, instructional designers, and court consultants.
