Overview

Government Programs

State and local governments provide their constituents with vital services that may not be available otherwise, such as transportation, public safety, healthcare, education, utilities, and courts. Professional and service occupations account for more than half of all jobs.  State and local governments are among the largest employers in the economy.

The College of Continuing Education at Sacramento State offers contract and corporate education to public agencies across the state. Let our experts help strengthen your workforce and be your partner in education.

New Coaching Component Added to Supervisory Training

Starting in the fall, new state government supervisors will receive one-on-one coaching when they begin their 80 hours of mandatory training through the College of Continuing Education (CCE) at Sacramento State.

For the first time, professional coaches are joining CCE’s State Supervisory Training Certificate Program to support supervisors as they transition to their new role and coach them through different challenges.
