Business Retention and Expansion
This interactive course presents the core components of a BRE program and why the concerns of local businesses need to be actively addressed. By building an understanding of business visitation techniques and survey methods, practitioners will be able to clearly gauge their community’s business climate. Learn the “red flags” that may indicate a company is looking to move elsewhere, and learn how to structure an effective technical assistance program to respond to business concerns. This course helps participants understand how a BRE program relates to attraction, workforce development, small business finance, technology transfer and many other economic development activities.

2018 REGIONAL IEDC TRAINING COURSE OFFERINGS
The EDCC partners with New Mexico and Arizona to bring IEDC certification classes and exams closer to home and at a discount. Without this partnership, the opportunity to gain access to this level of professional development not only requires a financial commitment, but a time commitment as well. By bringing these opportunities closer to home, more ED professionals have a better chance of getting their CEcD certification and what isn’t great about that? Great for you and even greater for Colorado!
