If I participate in the first course, HRE 247, do I have to participate in the second, HRE 347?
In order to receive the Real Estate Development Finance Professional Certification participants must complete both Part 1 and Part 2 of the training series. After completing both Part 1 and Part 2, participants will receive a certification from NDC as a Real Estate Development Finance Professional, along with a plaque for display. AICP members can earn Certification Maintenance (CM) credits for this activity. More information about AICP’s CM program can be found here. In some circumstances, participants choose not to complete HRE 347 or take the second course in a subsequent year. While we encourage participants to complete both courses within one year, there can be flexibility.
Will the course sessions be recorded and available later?
No, the virtual course sessions will not be recorded by the National Development Council. Students will have the ability to “capture” what the instructor is presenting through the GoToTraining virtual learning platform, but students must initiate this feature themselves.
Will there be course assignments?
Yes, there will be case studies and end-of-day assignments for each day of the course, concluding in an exam on Friday.
Can more than one person per Main Street program register for this course at the member rate?
Yes, up to three people per Main Street organization may register for the course at the reduced rate for Main Street America members. Each person must register and participate in the course as an individual and the discount codes would apply per person taking the course.
Will these courses be offered again next year?
We hope to offer this certificate series in-person in 2022, but we cannot be certain of any future course details at this time.
