A new requirement was introduced and passed during the 2017 Legislative session. The new state law (NDCC 40-16-03.18) requires city auditors, within one year of assuming office, to attend training based on a curriculum set by the NDLC.
The program curriculum is developed within Lessonly, which is a web-based platform providing the learner with the ability to have a flexible and independent schedule. The program is made up of several courses containing information, training and resources. Each course includes multiple lessons and quizzes and additional reference material for future use. Each course requies a 75% passing grade, when the passing grade is achieved a certificate of completion is provided for personal records. The course can be completed at your own pace but there is a one-year deadline requirement. The information and resources in each completed course remain accessible to the leaner for future reference.
Beginning January 1, 2018 the courses will be available for new city auditors and existing city auditors as well. The fee is $150.00 for all five training courses or $30 per course.
