CERTIFIED MUNICIPAL ENGINEER PROGRAM 2024-2025

ABOUT THE PROGRAM 

The Certified Municipal Engineer (CME) Program will again be offered for the 2024- 2025 cycle. The CME consists of a series of seminars and workshops devoted to municipal engineering practice. This will range from sessions that are technical in focus, some that are administrative in focus, and some that have elements of both. This is done to reflect the diversity of our profession. 

Attendance at each session is mandatory for the successful completion of the program. In the event that an applicant is unable to attend a session, a digital recording of the session will be available on a secure weblink and the applicant must view the session at their leisure. However, a maximum of two (2) makeup sessions are allowed for the successful completion of the course and no certificate will be received until all sessions are complete. 

Instruction in the program is based on current municipal engineering practices. The Instructors, who volunteer their time, are drawn from the ranks of professionals who the NJMEI Board of Governors recognize as expert in their particular specialty to present current, practical engineering information. 

The subject matter of the course will include both technical and administrative areas of municipal engineering practice in such areas as traffic engineering, roadway design, local public contracts law, the municipal land use law, personnel, storm water management, recreation design, construction safety and similar topics. Exact topic sequencing will vary depending speaker availability and topic currency and will be supplied prior to the beginning of the sessions.
