Announcing the CGDSP Certification

CGDSP logo

NAGW is excited to announce the Certified Government Digital Services Professional (CGDSP) certification! The deadline to register is August 31, 2017. 

​The position and responsibilities for today’s web manager has transformed from serving as technical resource to becoming a professional digital communications manager. Managing a government’s web service delivery has become more complex as expectations increase and many new—and more sophisticated—users, whether residents or other departments, are utilizing your organization’s web services.

As a web professional you face many challenges:

  • Keeping abreast of compliance rules
  • Staying on top of the latest technology platforms
  • Meeting the needs of internal customers
  • Responding to the public’s demand for more services

In light of all these challenges, there is a growing demand for practical and leadership-oriented professional development certification aimed at recognizing the web professional in this fast-evolving field: Delivering digital services through new methods and platforms. Having a certification program designed specifically to fit the needs of today’s busy web and digital services professional is highly desirable to demonstrate your competencies and skills required in today’s competitive environment.

Recognizing this need, the National Association of Government Web Professionals (NAGW) has partnered with the Public Technology Institute (PTI) and the Rutgers University Center for Government Services to offer a nine-month certificate program: The Certified Government Digital Services Professional (CGDSP). This program is about leadership in the field of digital services delivery. It is not designed to be a technical.
