The CETC is an ethics training mandated for New York State officers and employees who file an annual Financial Disclosure Statement ("FDS"). The CETC is a two-hour, live, instructor-led training that covers the Public Officers Law and other related ethics laws and regulations.
We expect agency Ethics Officers to continue to deliver the CETC to their FDS filers at regular intervals, or as needed, for FDS Filers to comply with the statutory ethics training deadlines. Please contact your Ethics Officer for additional training dates at your agency.
JCOPE will also present live sessions at its Albany office at 540 Broadway and via video conference at our Buffalo and NYC offices. Filers requesting attendance via video conference must physically attend at either our Buffalo or Manhattan office; we do not broadcast the CETC to individual workstations. Unless otherwise indicated, two Continuing Legal Education Credits (“CLE”) are available to State-employed attorneys the first time they attend a CETC session presented by JCOPE.
Monthly training sessions will resume in September. Check back by mid-August for new Fall/Winter training dates.
