MMTA Basic Institute

Basic is the cornerstone of the MMTA educational offering. A must-have for all career treasury professionals, it’s perfect for anyone who would like to grow in their profession. The program is designed to enhance the overall job performance of treasurers in both small and large municipalities. Successful completion of this week long session each spring for three consecutive years allows members to graduate from Basic and be eligible for the Michigan Certified Public Treasurer (MiCPT) certification from MMTA.
 
Basic's three year rolling curriculum was developed in cooperation with MMTA's national affiliate organization, APT US&C (Association of Public Treasurers of the US & Canada). The 100 hours of instruction over a wide array of topics ensure that every graduate has a thorough introduction and understanding of municipal treasury. Please plan to attend for three consecutive years in order to complete all the necessary classes.
 
Basic is an incredible opportunity to learn more about public treasury responsibilities, meet and build relationships with others in the field, and earn credentials by becoming a MiCPT. Basic Institute is also a great way to earn credits towards the national CPFA (Certified Public Finance Administrator) designation awarded by APT US&C.
