NCI Charrette trainings in Chicago, Oct. 24-27, 2017

Our next national training opportunity will take place Oct. 24-27, 2017, in Chicago at the American Planning Association headquarters. Registration is now available online. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your space today!

Additionally, we are unveiling our new compressed schedule, both reducing your time away and saving you money. Now you can earn both the NCI Charrette System certificate (core level) and the NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation certificate (advanced level) in only 3.5 days of training!

This shorter schedule allows us to offer the two courses at lower rates for a combined savings of about $300, while potentially saving you travel costs.

The early bird rate for the NCI Charrette System training is $695 and is available through Jun. 16, 2017. From Jun. 17-Oct. 6, the regular rate is $785.

The early bird rate for the NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation training is $345 and the regular rate is $395.

For those wanting to sign up for both training options, the combined early bird rate is $1,040, and the combined regular rate is $1,180.

These trainings have been submitted for continuing education hours by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and certification maintenance by the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) for 15.25 hours for the core level and 6.5 hours for the advanced level.

This set of trainings represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-design process using charrettes. Course content includes project assessment tools for gauging the length and cost of a charrette using project budget, political considerations and design difficulty. Also included in the training are conflict resolution tools, high- and low-tech tools for stakeholder engagement and public meetings.
