Technical Training for Clerks (TTC)

Technical Training for Clerks is a professional development program focusing on basic clerk duties, current trends, issues and challenges. The goal of the program is to increase technical skills and to enhance personal and professional growth. The TTC program is comprised of four unique sessions offering a variety of courses that adhere to the International Institute of Municipal Clerks core curriculum providing the required 120 hours (60 points) for accreditation as Certified Municipal Clerk. The sessions are normally held in March, June and September and can be taken in any order.

The program is held at the University of California Riverside Extension Center and is an affiliate of the League of California Cities. Our trainers are professional clerks, university instructors and municipal government professionals. 

TTC is recognized by the City Clerks Association of California (CCAC) as an official California training program leading to the professional accreditation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC).

Completion of all TTC series satisfies both the IIMC educational hour requirement for a Certified Municipal Clerk credential and the 12 units for the optional California Professional Municipal Clerk certificate offered by University of California Riverside Extension.
