The Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO) is offering a series of 2-day training academies in and near Kansas City, Missouri to help participants build competencies to effectively integrate climate change into their decision-making and professional activities. This series provides participants with training that will prepare them for the Certified Climate Change Professional® (CC-P®) credential exams and will satisfy the corresponding elective requirements by leveraging a combination of on-demand online training resources and in-person cohort training.
Held in partnership with the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), participants will learn from experts and community leaders about the implications of climate change, and related opportunities, with a regional focus added for Kansas City, Missouri and the mid-America region of the United States. Professionals across occupations in the public and private sectors, higher education and the NGO community will benefit from this training series.
