State Initiative Program

The State Initiative Program was developed by the Auburn Montgomery School of Accountancy and the state government members of its Accounting Advisory Board. The program development was driven by the installation of the State of Alabama’s new accounting systems and the need for state employees to receive formal education to increase their accounting knowledge and skills. This State Initiative continues AUM’s commitment to facilitate the educational needs of the State of Alabama’s employees.

The State Initiative Program consists of five accounting courses as required by the State of Alabama’s personnel classifications for the Account Clerk and the Accounting Technician positions.
