Delaware's local governments are increasingly being asked to focus much of their attention on growth and development. Local governments must often make difficult decisions that can have long-lasting impacts on the community's character, economy, and quality. The Delaware Planning Education Program is a certificate program which can be earned by completing at least five planning-related courses from IPA's annual local government training series within a three-year period.
What is the Certificate for Planning Education?
The program format includes regularly scheduled
training with a group of core courses (PLN 101, PLN 102, and PLN 103)
offered every year and a menu of "electives" that vary every year.
training topics include:
- What is a comprehensive plan and why it is important?
- What are the roles and responsibilities of those involved in the planning process?
- What are the tools available to local governments to deal with land use and growth issues?
Customary registration fees are $50 for participation in most of the individual education and training sessions.
