AIC Institute for Excellence in County Government

About the AIC Institute for Excellence in County Government

With the many facets and complexities of government, well-educated people are needed to insure that government functions run smoothly. The AIC has devoted its resources to improve government through its educational program called AIC Institute for Excellence in County Government, previously called DIPLOMA (Development Improvement & Preparation for Leadership Organizational & Management Achievement). The DIPLOMA Program was established in 1993 to allow officials and county employees access to training geared specifically to county government. We bring in experts to help you deal with issues that could arise in your office and provide the building blocks that will help every person working in local government.

The AIC Institute program is presented to all elected county officials and staff and a reduced rate is given to AIC affiliate groups; however anyone wanting to further their knowledge about government is welcome enroll. After accruing thirty credit hours of study within two consecutive years, program participants qualify for AIC Institute Certification.
New to the AIC Institute for Excellence in County Government courses, they will be live classes with the option to watch the recording.  Recorded classes will be available 3 weeks after the initial class and a link will be emailed to anyone who registers to view the recorded class.
