The MMCI (Institute) is a three-year continuing education program leading to professional accreditation.
Each year the Institute consists of a required five day, 40 hour curriculum, for a total of 120 hours of programming over the three year period. Once participants have completed the mandatory 120 hour curriculum, they become graduates of the Institute.
This is an exceptional and internationally accredited program, for which SCSU is the only authorized provider in Minnesota. The International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) has set forth the guidelines and accredits the Institute.
Clerks successfully completing the three year Institute program are awarded 50 points toward the Education requirements of the Minnesota Certified Municipal Clerk (MCMC) designation. Graduates must apply to the MCFOA for this certification, showing 25 points in the Experience category and 3 years of active membership in the MCFOA in addition to their 50 Education points.
MMCI graduates can also apply for certification from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks for the Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) designation which requires 60 points in Education and 50 experiences points with two years of active membership in the IIMC.

There is a strict adherence to punctuality in each session and no cell phone calls or texting are allowed in the classroom (devices are allowed for session materials only).
Attendance will be tracked. In rare instances related to emergencies, excused absences are allowed if approved by the Institute Director. These excused absences will require a “makeup assignment” that is provided by the Institute Director (who will collaborate with the instructor prior to the end of the programming).
