  • Will this training satisfy the statutory requirements for new board members?

    Yes! While statutory guidelines explicitly state that new board appointees must receive 8 hours of training, they do not specify where this training comes from. Upon completion, our DDA 101 will have met the baseline requirement for 8 hours of training.

  • Will I receive a certificate?

    Yes, upon completion of all modules, you will automatically be generated a certificate of completion. Your training dashboard will contain a progress monitor that will indicate how much of the total course you have completed as you progress through each module.

  • What makes this training different than other DDA trainings offered?

    Our training is unique in a couple of ways. First, it is specifically designed for new DDA board members that are from a Main Street designated community. The Main Street Approach is a 40- year, time-tested approach that provides a unique way in which a community can tackle downtown development. While this training is accessible to anyone who may need it, there is significant course content that would not be relevant to board members from non-Main Street communities.
