Training has been a core mission of the Association since its inception in 1911. The Training and Professional Development Department has partnered with national, state and local government organizations as well as private sector business to provide the most current and up-to-date training across the state. Over the last decade, we have trained more than 15,000 municipal employees and have held over 1,000 courses across the state.
All training courses are lead by experienced local officials, municipal managers, finance directors, planning directors, and other consultants with a wealth of practical experience. PSAB professionals with extensive backgrounds in public administration, adult education, training and development, and meeting planning administer all programs.
While training has been and will continue to be a major component, this department, is also tasked with the additional responsibility of envisioning future opportunities local municipalities will be presented with.
The duties and responsibilities of municipal officials are in a constant state of flux, further increasing the demands upon their time, experience and knowledge, with this in mind we have initiated and will continue the Certified Borough Officials (CBO) Certification of Achievement Program.
PSAB serves all of the boroughs, its officials and employees, and ultimately the citizens of the Commonwealth. With your input, ideas and energy, quality programs will continue to be provided. Your concerns, and suggestions are appreciated and welcomed. Please feel free to contact us at 800-232-7722 or 717-236-9526.
