GPSTC is proud to announce Angela Bowen, Instructional Services Division Manager, graduated from APCO International’s Certified Public-Safety Executive Program. Bowen accomplished the prestigious CPE professional designation, and is one of 22 people who have earned it.
Cheryl Greathouse, GPSTC Instructional Services Division Director and member of the APCO International Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, remarks: “We recognized the need for executive leadership training within our industry. Working closely with our members and experts in leadership and organizational development, we designed the CPE Program to give public safety professions as unparalleled experience that is specific to our industry.”
In July 2016, APCO’s CPE program began for public safety communications professionals who wish to achieve executive leadership positions. The CPE Program is only available twice a year. The CPE program uses distinguished leadership professionals and esteemed academic resources to teach management versus leadership, models/theories of leadership, leadership styles, public safety leadership issues, and executing and managing change. This program consists of two 12-week online courses and attendance at the APCO headquarters, in Daytona Beach, Florida, for a nine-day capstone project.
