The BEDC will provide the participant with a comprehensive understanding of the keys of successful economic development. For those new to the profession, the BEDC is the first step toward professional certification.
This course is conducted through a partnership with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX).
The course is accredited by the International Economic Development Council. It fulfills one of the prerequisites for those who wish to take the examinations for the Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) designation.
