State Mandated Training

State law (O.C.G.A. sections 36-1-24 and 36-45-20) requires anyone hired as of April 1, 1992, holding the title of "clerk" or performing the duties of a municipal/county clerk pursuant to the local charter, ordinance, or code shall attend a 15-hour mandated orientation training. The training consists of a basic overview of job duties and functions required of clerks. The 15-hour mandated training counts toward the 100 hours required for full certification.  Mandated training is offered at the fall and winter training conferences.
