Court Staff Receives National Certification
Nicole Shaw, Chief Probation Officer of the Coshocton County Juvenile Court recently received her Certified Court Manager (CCM) certification in a ceremony at The Thomas J. Moyer Judicial Center in Columbus. With 37 more court professionals achieving national certification recently, Ohio now employs nearly 300 certified court managers working in courts statewide.
Offered through a partnership between the Ohio Supreme Court’s Judicial College and the National Center for State Courts’ Institute for Court Management since 2002, the Court Management Program addresses specific training needs of court leaders.
Each court professional attained the credential by completing a three-year program of courses, including the purposes and responsibilities of courts, case flow management, and court performance standards.
Ohio is among a handful of states that bring this training program to court professionals so that traveling out-of-state isn’t necessary.
Participants represent all jurisdictions and regions of the state and include court administrators, elected and appointed clerks, chief probation officers and other court staff in management positions.
Supreme Court Justice Patrick F. Fischer offered his congratulations, as did Supreme Court Administrative Director Michael L. Buenger during a graduation ceremony at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center.
