NDC Training Schedule

NDC helps communities build development finance capacity at the local level through training leading to professional certification.  NDC's courses are intense and rigorous, with as many classroom hours as an average college course, plus homework, and in certification courses, a final examination administered on the last day of each class.  You may attend the courses at your own pace but may not enroll in any course until you have met all prerequisites.  Training participants work through case studies based on actual projects. We have trained more than 70,000 individuals in the art and science of economic and housing development finance.
