The Utah CPM Program is committed to continuous improvement. We value feedback from participants and regularly report to the National CPM Consortium regarding our efforts. In 2015, Politics & Government in Utah was released as an online self-paced module. In Fall 2016, Course 1 was released online for a fully web-based course instructed by Ron Vandermyde. The first online cohort completed certification in June 2017.
All web-based coursework uses the Canvas platform. This is the same platform used by our public universities. This platform hosts materials for onsite as well as complete curriculum for web-based courses. We hope this will offer participants an intuitive experience and new options and opportunities we have not been able to offer before. A vital part of the CPM program is peer interaction and learning. Canvas accommodates this important learning component while opening the possibility of networking public managers across the far reaches of Utah.
