Clean Communities Coordinator Certification

Clean Communities Coordinators Certification is a training program developed by the NJ Clean Communities Council and administered by the Rutgers Office of Continuing Professional Education to provide Clean Communities Coordinators with the skills they need to effectively manage Clean Communities programs. Our mission is to reduce litter on public places through a network of highly skilled, talented and dedicated Clean Communities program managers.    

Clean Communities Coordinator Certification (CCCC) requires coordinators to earn 20 credit hours in basic training and submit a final paper. Recertification requires coordinators to earn an additional 20 hours that includes 12 hours of safety training.

Coordinators may earn recertification hours by attending seminars and workshops offered by the Clean Communities Council, and affiliated organizations. Credit hours must be approved by the Clean Communities Council at least 2 weeks before the event takes place.  Sign-in sheets must be submitted to Rutgers OCPE, no later than 2 weeks after the event takes pace.
