Local officials should attend OSC training because our courses are designed to meet the needs of NYS local government officials and employees in providing efficient and effective government services. Our training courses are developed with input from local officials throughout the state and use trainers who are experts in their fields. You will benefit by receiving the latest training in areas that help improve your understanding of municipal accounting, finance, and operations. You will also receive important guidance and information on a number of legal issues.
