Real Estate Development and Financing
March 18 - 19, 2021
Online, Interactive Course
The Ohio Economic Development Association is proud to have partnered with JobsOhio and Ohio University Voinovich School to create the Ohio Economic Development Institute, the state’s premier professional development program for economic development professionals.
Course Description: This two-day course is designed to provide the economic development professional with the critical steps of real estate development and a comprehensive understanding of how a deal progresses through to completion.
Attendees will analyze the anatomy of a real estate deal and learn how each component stage impacts the next, and how real estate development is practiced in Ohio. This understanding will help the ED professional recognize the challenges (and often barriers) to advancing a new development in their community and to more thoughtfully understand approaches in helping close the deal.
The OEDI Real Estate Course interactive delivery model helps ensure participants will leave with immediately applicable knowledge and build their professional network through group activities and the inclusion of an evening networking reception. Unlike traditional lecture-style, this course focuses on participant engagement and interaction. And, it provides a forum for economic development professionals to share information and build relationship with the best in the industry.
The Ohio Certified Economic Developer (OhioCED) is state-specific credential for economic developers in Ohio. All professional development and continuing education programs offered though the Ohio Economic Development Association (OEDA) and/or through its advanced learning program, the Ohio Economic Development Institute (OEDI), provide credit for earning and maintaining the Ohio Certified Economic Developer.
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. Individuals who will be taking the Ohio Basic Economic Development Course in April 2021 may register for the courses.
OEDI courses are stand-alone, though they serve as the pathway to the Ohio Certified Economic Development (OhioCED) Credential. Members are encouraged to register for multiple courses to received special discounted pricing.
