Rutgers University Professional Development Institute

The Bloustein Online Continuing Education Program (BOCEP) offers professional development that is convenient and cost-effective and will give you the knowledge and skills to build your career or your practice.

Our courses are designed for busy professionals who want high quality learning, but do not have the time or resources to commit themselves to traditional planning courses. There are no required meetings, but courses are interactive; you can share ideas and solve problems with planners from around the United States. You can participate from virtually any computer with an Internet connection. The courses, taught by seasoned practitioners, are designed to help you learn more than you could in a typical workshop.

The next set of courses, from March 4 to April 11, are:
*Brownfields Redevelopment. Learn how to address and reclaim polluted properties for neighborhood revitalization.
*Economic Development Analysis. With the federal stimulus package approved, if there ever was a time to learn economic development analysis, this is it.
*New Jersey Planning Law. If you're interested in working, or getting planning contracts in New Jersey, you should learn the state's planning laws.

Each course has been submitted for 14 AICP Certification Maintenance credits.

Future courses in 2009 include: Form Based Codes, Cultural Community and Economic Development, Housing Law, Professional's Writing Studio, Introduction to New Urbanism and Environmental Planning Law.

Each course costs $295. Planetizen readers who are among the first 10 to register for a course can get a $50 scholarship per course. Use promotion code: BGBBS
