Certification Program

The Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program is a self-paced distance learning program that consists of four courses. All courses are offered through an online learning management system.


Each of the four courses consists of:

  • HomeworkEnrollees complete four modules of homework in each of the four courses. The homework is completed and submitted for grading via the online learning management system.
  • ExaminationEnrollees must pass an examination over the homework in each of the four courses.
  • SeminarsEnrollees must attend two full TMCCP seminars pertaining to each of the four courses.
Each course consists of homework, an examination, and two seminars.

Each course will require approximately 50 hours of study. The courses may be taken in any order.

The four TMCCP courses are as follows:

overview of courses

An enrollee works on one course at a time, submitting homework online as it is completed. The enrollee takes an exam over each course's completed homework. The enrollee also attends eight seminars throughout the process when convenient. The enrollee earns a certificate for each completed course. Enrollees work through the program at their own pace. There is a time limit of 10 years to complete the Certification Program (most enrollees complete the program in far less time).

When the enrollee finishes all four courses, the enrollee is now a graduate of the program, earning a final certificate and the Texas Registered Municipal Clerk (TRMC) designation. After certification, recertification is required every five years.
