NJCE Leadership Academy

J.A. Montgomery Consulting and the NJCE JIF has created the “NJCE Leadership Academy” for Managers, Administrators, Department Heads, and Supervisors interested in sharpening and expanding communication, conflict resolution, stress management, and team-building skills. The goal is to enhance leadership skills by offering participants varied and in-depth training.

Classes will be offered through the Live Safety Training Monthly Schedules which can be found here (https://njce.org/safety/safety-webinars/) and will include a combination of virtual and in-person* classes at various locations throughout New Jersey. (If a link is not present on the Monthly Training Schedules or a class date/location is not showing on the NJCE Learning Management System (LMS) the class may not be offered yet, so please check back.) Participants who successfully complete the requirements will receive a plaque to commemorate graduation from the NJCE Leadership Academy. Note: The Safety Leadership Plaques will be distributed once a year starting in 2023. More details to follow.


    • Complete 6 Mandatory classes and 4 Elective classes of your choice (Law Enforcement has 5 Mandatory classes)
    • Classes must be completed within two-years from the date the student starts the program.

If you enrolled during the first two enrollment sessions with the 1/1/2022 or 7/1/2022 Program Start Date, the new curriculum changes do not apply and you will complete the academy using the original curriculum (Safety Leadership Academy Flyer 2022).

Academy Open Enrollment:

Open enrollment will be held for 3-weeks prior to each session. The enrollment form must be submitted during this timeframe, or the participant will not be eligible to start and will be required to wait for the next enrollment period. Participants only have to enroll one time. Once enrolled they can register for mandatory and elective classes.
