ACM Application

The Arizona Court Manager (ACM) program is for second-level managers, senior supervisors or participants completing the Arizona Court Supervisor (ACS) program. Participants must be recommended by their court or probation department.

 AOC Staff Application

Courses consist of National Center for State Courts (NCSC) Institute for Court Management (ICM) courses and Arizona-specific AZ PLUS courses.

Participants must first apply for admission to the Arizona Court Manager (ACM) program. Admission requires approval of their department head—typically the presiding judge, chief probation officer, juvenile court center director, clerk of the court or superior court administrator.

Once admitted, participants can register online for calendared classes two months prior to class start date. Only program participants receive notification of scheduled classes.

At this time there is no cost to attend these classes. Classes are held at the Judicial Education Center in Phoenix and travel costs are the responsibility of the participant or their court. Participants who want the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) ICM Certified Court Manager certificate pay a $50 per class fee to the NCSC. Fees can be paid by check, credit card or purchase requisition. Click here for the ICM Payment Authorization Form.
