ONLINE VA Government & Law
The class is a recording of a session held in Roanoke on March 31 and April 1. It provides an online alternative to the live seminar class periodically offered and meets the requirement for Virginia Government and Law in the joint VGFOA and Radford University Certificate program. This is a self-paced course that has five main sections.
The course is taught by Fred Parker, Treasurer of Washington County and past president of the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia. The course covers the structure of local government, the Dillion Rule, intergovernmental relations, how to use Opinions of the Attorney General, FOIA and Conflict of Interest, the role of the Compensation Board and public meetings.
Each section has a recorded PowerPoint slide presentation. Prior to starting the exam, you can come and go from the presentation at any time. The slides can be printed in advance for reference and making notes while taking the class.
After you have completed all five sections, you need to take the course exam. There is a two-hour time limit and you only have one attempt. Once you start the exam, the two-hour period begins and does not stop if you leave the exam. There are 63 multiple choice questions on the exam. The exam is closed book and notes.
This online class offers 7 hours of CPEs.
