What is the difference between the NCI Charrette System™ Certificate training and the NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation™ Certificate training?

The NCI Charrette System™ Certificate training is the foundation of NCI’s educational program. It is a comprehensive look at the three-phase NCI Charrette System™ from project start-up through implementation. Details on key learnings and a training agenda can be found here.
This training is applicable to a wide range of project roles and interests, whether or not you expect to conduct a charrette. It is a prerequisite for the NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation™ training.

The NCI Charrette Management and Facilitation™ training provides a more nuts-and bolts look at each day and phase of a charrette from the perspective of a project manager. We discuss team/design management, meeting facilitation, room set-up and the production process. This is an advanced course for directors and project managers who are charged with managing charrettes or who may hire a consultant to conduct a charrette. The NCI Charrette System™ Certificate training is a prerequisite for attending this training.
