Contact: Holly Madill

The National Charrette Institute is hosting a Complete Charrette certificate training in Denver, Colo. This certificate-based training program combines both webinar and in-person components.

Certificate Training Overview

This three-day hybrid (webinar, plus in-person) training combines the content from NCI’s System and Management & Facilitation courses, plus adds new content around dealing with conflict and diversity, equity and inclusion via guest instructors.

The Complete Charrette Certificate Training course is a highly interactive course which blends instruction with case study exercises and practicing techniques and tools learned to provide participants with all the content required to successfully prepare for, manage, facilitate and conduct a charrette.

This course represents a collaborative project management system centered on the co-design process using charrettes and includes

  • Project assessment tools for gauging the length and cost of a charrette using a project budget, political considerations and design difficulty;
  • Nuts-and-bolts tools needed for managing a multiple-day charrette;
  • Introduction to diversity, equity and inclusion, and ways to make charrette processes more inclusive; and
  • Approaches for dealing with conflict.

This training is ideal for anyone involved in transforming communities and organizations, those charged with managing charrettes, or who may hire a consultant to conduct a charrette, including city and regional planners, public health staff, developers, architects, land and transportation planning consultants, citizen advocates, directors and project managers.


No prerequisite is required for this training.
