Training & Professional Development

Since our inception, Public Technology Institute (PTI) has placed our focus on raising the profile of today’s IT professional, ensuring that IT has a seat at the table when it comes to decisions, and helping to build/strengthen the professional/leadership/management skills of IT professionals. With a focus on navigating the emerging trends that will impact government IT and service delivery, PTI has created a collaborative leadership development environment that rewards sharing solutions and identifying leading practices together. In IT roles that often leave leaders feeling like they’re on an island, PTI also provides opportunities to make valuable professional connections.

We make this possible through the following:

Certified Government Chief Information Officer (CGCIO™)

A 12-month course for public sector CIOs, IT executives and practitioners that addresses the technology leadership and management challenges impacting the local government IT community. Presented with Rutgers University Center for Government Services.

Certified Government Digital Services Professional (CGDSP)

A self-paced, online course for today’s government web manager who is transforming from serving as a technical resource to becoming a professional digital communications manager. Presented with Rutgers University Center for Government Services.


Learning and growth is something that never ends. For CGCIO graduates, we have developed programming geared to their ongoing growth and development as leaders.
