Produced and offered in partnership with Cook County, Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and Metropolitan Planning Council, ACCO is offering a series of 2-day training academies in Chicago to help participants build competencies to effectively integrate climate change into their decision-making and professional activities. Leveraging a blended learning approach consisting of self-study online training and in-person cohort training, this series provides participants with training that will prepare them for Certified Climate Change Professional® (CC-P®) credential exams and will satisfy the corresponding elective requirements.
Series participants will learn from experts about the implications of climate change with a regional focus added for Chicago and the Midwest. Professionals across occupations in the public and private sectors, higher education and the NGO community will benefit from this training series.
