Upcoming OEDA Training Opportunities
Even with the travel limitations imposed by the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Ohio Economic Development Institute continues to offer professional development opportunities.
Recognizing that the profession is under the same travel restrictions as others, OEDA has worked to continue its professional development programming on-line. We are changing the course material and agenda to stress dialogue among the instructors and students.
Of particular note, OEDA has converted the annual Ohio Basic Economic Development Course to an on-line, on-demand, interactive course that provides students with the flexibility to complete the Basic Course on their own schedule.
Here is a list of the upcoming events:
- June 1 – September 30: On-Line OEDA Ohio Basic Economic Development Course
