How will a NCI certificate benefit me?

Every year more and more cities are using the NCI Charrette Request for Proposal (RFP) Template for their RFPs. Often they cite NCI as a source and state a preference for NCI certificate holders. This year we also increased certificate holder exposure with our online certificate holder database. Now project sponsors and potential team members can find you on our website by region.

In addition to learning practical skills, tools and techniques to prepare you to plan and manage a project that includes a charrette, the NCI Charrette System™ Certificate training is accredited with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for 18 continuing education system (CES) units, with the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) for 18 certification maintenance (CM) credits, and with the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) for 18 LA CES professional development hours (PDH).
The NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation™ Certificate course is accredited with the AIA for 9 continuing education system (CES) units, with the AICP for 9 certification maintenance (CM) credits, and with the ASLA for 9 LA CES professional development hours (PDH).

Following each of our trainings, participants receive a certificate that verifies completion. NCI does not currently conduct any type of testing or competency assessment following the trainings so we are not able to provide any further verification of credentials. For more information about the NCI certificates please visit our trainings page.
