National Charrette Institute

Learn how to prepare and orchestrate charrettes and facilitate tough public meetings with NCI's certification trainings. Enrollment is limited so you will be learning with a small group of experienced professionals. Our recent trainings in Miami were sold out with a significant waiting list. NCI is the only source for in-depth charrette training. Both the NCI Charrette Planner™ and NCI Public Meeting Facilitator™ Certifications will be offered in Portland Oregon, October 19-25. New to the "Continuing Dynamic Planning" training is the option to bring your project as a case study. Up to four cases will be chosen.

NCI Charrette Planner™ Certification
October 19, 2005
Module One: "Introduction to Dynamic Planning: The Charrette in Context"

This half-day NCI seminar will provide a complete overview of the NCI Dynamic Planning process. The NCI Dynamic Planning process provides holistic solutions to design and public involvement obstacles encountered in most conventional planning processes. Dynamic Planning begins with the project vision and ends with the plan's implementation. It includes the use of collaborative design and public involvement tools, such as charrettes, visioning, and workshops.

October 20-21, 2005
Module Two: "Continuing Dynamic Planning: Professional Tools and Techniques"

This two-day training will teach you how to plan a charrette using NCI's time-tested methods. The training will allow you not only to learn about the NCI Dynamic Planning and charrette processes, but will also give you the chance to hear from your peers about the problems they are facing and solving!

"I just wanted to take this time to let you know that we had a very successful charrette in South Dakota. We had a great team and we ended up with a great plan and a very happy client. The charrette ran very smoothly and I think that the NCI training that we went through played a big part in preparing us for the experience.
