County Investment Academy membership can be obtained by successfully completing the Basics of County Investments (formerly CIO Level I) program. Membership in the Academy can be maintained by earning 15 hours of continuing education per calendar year. Five hours can be from an approved outside source, and you can carry five hours forward from one year to the next. If an Academy Member posts a deficit in number of continuing education hours earned toward the County Investment Academy’s requirements at the end of a calendar year, that Member may make up the deficit in the following calendar year, provided that the Member can earn enough hours to cover the deficit plus the normal 15 continuing education hours annual requirement.
