OEDA is an approved provider for several other organizations and some of its education and professional development programs may provide credit for earning or maintaining other professional credentials or meeting professional licensure requirements. These may include but are not limited to lawyers, planners, architects and development finance professionals. OEDA and OEDI programs approved for continuing education will include that information in the program description.
Prerequisites: There is a prerequisite for all Institute courses. Attendees must have completed The Ohio Basic Economic Development Course or have three years of economic or community development experience.
