MCTI is a three-year program designed to provide municipal clerks and treasurers with the skills critical to their respective professions. To receive a certificate, participants attended more than 100 hours of classes in the role of the municipal clerk, financial management, management skills, overview of government, records management, public administration, election administration, conducting meetings, personal development, personnel management and municipal law.
The Institute is approved by both the International Institute of Municipal Clerks and the Municipal Treasurers Association of the United States and Canada. Completion of MCTI satisfies the education requirements for certification from both groups.
MCTI is co-sponsored by the Municipal Association of South Carolina, the Municipal Finance Officers, Clerks and Treasurers Association, and the University of South Carolina's Institute of Public Services and Policy Research.
The Municipal Association of South Carolina is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit Association of incorporated cities and towns dedicated to raising the standards of municipal government through a broad range of services.
