EDNZ Accreditation Training Team

Accreditation (AcED)

If you are new to economic development, interested in further honing your skills and/or achieving formal ED qualifications then AcED is for you.  


You can choose to either graze the many training courses without pursuing the AcED or achieve the different levels of AcED through specific courses.
