 Online course certifies planning officials and interested residents as Master Citizen Planners

Purdue Extension and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant have opened enrollment in American Citizen Planner – Indiana, an online training course for local planning officials and interested residents. Participants learn about core planning issues, practices, and theories related to community planning and service as a public official. After completing online coursework and participation in two webinars, participants will earn the Master Citizen Planner certificate. The enrollment period ends August 21, 2020.

The American Citizen Planner – Indiana course is offered twice each year. Contact your local Purdue Extension office to learn more about the program. Participants are given four months to complete the course requirements and must attend two webinars, hosted by a Purdue Extension Educator. Webinars offer deeper dives into course topics and hear from experts on current issues that affect community and land-use planning in Indiana.

The course registration fee of $200 includes four months of access to the online modules, and registration for the two in-person webinars.
