Certification Program

 Return to L.A.N.D.S site


The Colorado State Conservation Board’s District Certification program is designed to provide valuable information for both elected and appointed district supervisors as to their duties, responsibilities, roles, etc. as elected public officials of their local Conservation District. 

The training includes the following components:
  • Training modules.
    Most modules correspond to the information that is available from the Online Reference Manual. Each module is designed to be conducted one of two ways, either by each individual supervisor on their own, or at monthly board meetings/watershed meetings.

  • Each module has a short, open book test.
    Individuals are welcome to take the test, sign it and mail or email it in to the State Office along with the Proof of Completion Form. As a board, you can take the test together filling out the Proof of Completion Form (which includes signatures of each member in attendance). Please also send in a copy of the meeting minutes that would verify the attendance and completion of the module.
