Take NDC's Economic Development Finance Professional Series in Michigan 2019-2020
The EDFP Certification Program™ is a rigorous, four-course training series that explores the skills essential for the successful practice of economic development – business credit and real estate finance analysis techniques, loan packaging procedures, negotiating and problem-solving skills and deal structuring techniques. Participants in the EDFP Certification Program build the capacity to translate development opportunities into results for their communities.
Topics covered in the EDFP Certification Program include the following:
- Business credit
- Real estate finance analysis
- Loan packaging procedures
- Negotiating and problem-solving skills
- Deal structuring techniques
You will learn from the real world examples of NDC course instructors. In addition to lessons drawn from actual projects, you will learn through hands-on exercises. You will be presented with projects and will be challenged to complete them successfully.
Certification candidates must complete all four courses and pass the examination administered on the final 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.
