More information on the AKBEDC course...
The Alaska Basic Economic Development Course offers education in comprehensive economic and community development, tailored to the unique opportunities and challenges of Alaska.
This course has been designed for economic development practitioners from all sectors of the economy – public, private, or nonprofit. It is also appropriate for experienced professionals looking to adapt their skills to Alaska, economic development volunteers, and people working in cross-over fields such as transportation, utilities, real estate, finance, telecommunications, and native corporations. The Alaska BEDC is accredited by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), making it equivalent to IEDC's Introduction to Economic Development Course and eligible for the requirements of the IEDC Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) exam.
The registration fee for this four-day course is $600 per person. This includes all instructional and course materials, and lunch on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Refunds will not be available for cancellations made after November 16, two weeks prior to the course.
I have heard from numerous attendees that this training has exceeded their expectations in regard to content…and applicability to their community/job. One woman told me this was the best training she had ever been to.”
