Are you interested in the NCI Charrette System certificate training, but don’t have time in your busy schedule to attend an in-person event? Then, maybe the MSU National Charrette Institute’s online course is a better fit for you.

Launched in May, this non-credit course, provides the same in-depth working knowledge of the NCI Charrette System with an emphasis on design thinking as if you were attending the training in-person. It also offers advanced collaborative innovation processes.

You will learn how to assess any design project, and determine the right type of charrette–a series of meetings to resolve conflicts and map solutions–and its associated scope and budget.

Through this 20-hour training (equivalent to the 2.5-day NCI classroom training or the two-credit MSU course) participants will learn to activate the unique creative potential of all stakeholders by embedding them in the design process to co-create a transformative plan, while saving time and money.

While this training is specifically tailored for those working on real estate development or community planning projects, the NCI Charrette System is a collaborative process that can be applied to any type of design or planning project.

This course will equip participants with a flexible, yet replicable, systematic project management process. The best part is it is available for you to access online at your own place and on your own time!
