The Texas Court Management Program (Texas CMP) certification mirrors the nationally recognized program developed by the Institute for Court Management (ICM) and will be offered in Texas exclusively to Texas court personnel.
TACA and the Institute for Court Management of the National Center for State Courts (NCSC).
Texas CMP is designed for those persons who have completed the Trial Court Coordination and Trial Court Management courses of the Professional Development Program curriculum. Applications will be reviewed before acceptance, and preference will be given to applicants who have already completed these two programs.
If space is available, applicants who have not completed Years 1 and 2 of PDP will be considered, but these individuals must commit to attend and complete the ICM Fundamental Issues of Caseflow Management course prior to the concluding seminar and at their own expense.
A Texas CMP applicant must have completed PDP within the previous 5 years prior to submitting an application in order to waive the required completion of ICM Fundamental Issues of Caseflow Management.
The Texas CMP program consists of 5 core courses (2.5 days/16 hours each).
The program is offered at substantial savings (one-third of the cost of completing the program through ICM) to participants through the use of Texas faculty and reduced travel costs for participants.
