Remote Deliveries

Because one of the foundational principles of CED is taking a “place-based” approach to economic development, we have collaborated over the years with many local organizations around Western Canada to deliver the courses remotely in their communities. The program has also been adapted and offered internationally in Bolivia, Mexico, and Ukraine. Remote deliveries are core to the mission of the program in that they enable us to build CED capacity in communities which may not otherwise have access to formal education in the discipline.

If you are a college, local government, or NGO and are interested in partnering to deliver a certificate program in your region, please contact us and we can discuss partnership opportunities. Generall, partnering includes revenue sharing and local instructor hiring.
