Here's what people are saying about our online courses: 

I found the collaboration between different Economic Developers across multiple municipalities and provinces that we were introduced to in the course to be very valuable , along with the information provided by Natalie Gibson to be extremely informative and comprehensive. 

Blake Chartrand MBA, Urban Form & Corporate Strategic Development Economic and Environmental Sustainability,  City of Edmonton AB

I found the  courses very helpful and I really enjoyed working with other professionals across the province. Not only was the course insightful and timely, I found that it could help even the most seasoned veteran. The networking I experienced was a fantastic side benefit as well.  I'd highly recommend this course for any Economic Development Specialist.

Greg Robinson, Director Community Development & Human Resources, Town of Raymond AB

I liked the online format because it allowed me to access content whenever I wanted. For those intimidated by the online concept,  this was my first time taking an online course. Whenever I had an issue, my instructor, was there with a prompt answer so I was able to continue. I found great benefit in the ‘Discussion Board’ where you could interact with other students and learn from them as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this process. What a great way to learn!

Carolyn McIntyre, CED Assistant for the Wildrose Region AB. 

Economic practitioners appreciate EDA's new online or e-learning courses. E-learning has many benefits; students can self-pace assignments to suit their schedules, learning styles and complete course work from anywhere and at anytime. The assignments are paced in a way that is manageable for the students; and interaction through-out the four weeks creates an online community similar to a classroom experience. The students are welcomed into the course and encouraged to interact with each other through the discussion board, or in the live group session called Elluminate; both are excellent ways to share ideas and ask questions.  -Natalie Gibson, CEDTP trainer.
