Since 1987, the Economic Development Course in Pennsylvania has served the needs of full-time economic development practitioners and those involved in economic development in a secondary way. The course draws participants whose background range from the seasoned professional to the beginning practitioner. Participants learn theoretical and practical approaches to economic development.
The Economic Development Course in Pennsylvania is accredited by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). The IEDC is the nation's largest membership organization for economic developers. The course is considered the equivalent of the IEDC's Introduction to Economic Development Course, and serves as a requirement to sit for the Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) exam.
