3 International Economic Development Council Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) Program The International Economic Development Council (IEDC), as part of its many services to its members and the economic development community, has developed a voluntary Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) program in order to recognize dedication and excellence of practitioners in the field of economic development. IEDC certification denotes a mastery of principal skills in economic development, professional attainment, and a commitment to professional and personal growth. Individuals successfully completing the Certified Economic Developer program will be recognized as a CEcD. The IEDC CEcD certification program is derived from IEDC s successful training program, which educates economic developers from around the world. The voluntary certification program is geared toward practitioners who have chosen to dedicate their work to increasing job opportunities, increasing the tax base and, most importantly, improving the quality of life in their communities of practice. Hence, the exam critiques the practitioner s broad knowledge of economic development as well as his/her expertise in practicing the profession. The process requires a combination of education, experience in economic development and recognizes other certifications that can be related back to the competencies of economic development. IEDC certification is based solely on the development of key skills in areas that the IEDC Education and Certification Committee has established as the principles of economic development. Those interested in applying for IEDC s certification must have: At least four years professional development experience in economic development. A personal commitment to economic development. Complete the Primer to the Certification Exam Process: What you Need to Know Workshop or Webinar. Mastery of a body of knowledge in economic development. The exam will cover competencies identified by the IEDC Education and Certification Committee as the core competencies of economic developers. The four core competency courses are: Business Retention and Expansion*, Economic Development Credit Analysis*, Real Estate Development and Reuse*, and the Introduction to Economic Development*. The remaining courses are considered electives, these courses include: Economic Development Marketing and Attraction, Strategic Planning, Entrepreneurial and Small Business Development Strategies, Managing Economic Development Organizations, Neighborhood Development Strategies, Technology-Led Economic Development, and Workforce Development Strategies. Candidates sitting for the exam are responsible for content covered in the core courses and two electives of their choice. The IEDC training manuals will be the basis of the exam questions. The written and oral exams will be offered in conjunction with one another. Only individuals who have previously applied to take the exam for that exam period, and have received confirmation to do so, may sit for the exam. Although an applicant is only allowed to sit for the exam with a minimum of four years of experience, please note that this is the absolute minimum. The Education and Certification Committee suggests applicants have at least five years of experience. The purpose of the four year minimum requirement is to serve those who feel that they are ready to take the exam after four years in the profession.
4 Certification Requirements All applicants are expected to have taken six of the twelve courses currently offered through IEDC s professional training program (or the equivalent, see p. 5). Four of these courses are required; Introduction to Economic Development (or the Basic Economic Development Course), Business Retention & Expansion, Economic Development Credit Analysis, and Real Estate Development and Reuse. The additional two courses are to be selected by the candidate from the seven elective courses. Individuals may attend the courses in any order, but may not take the certification exam until all course requirements are met. Beginning in January 2016, candidates may choose the two electives to be tested on during the exam. The selection of these electives may be based on courses taken or from areas candidates have professional experience. Questions found on the exam come directly from the IEDC training manual, so it is recommended that candidates purchase training manuals for each of the competencies they will be tested on. Manuals are included in the registration fees of IEDC training courses. Core courses: Coursework Introduction to Economic Development (or Basic Economic Development Education Course) Business Retention and Expansion Economic Development Credit Analysis Real Estate Development and Reuse Electives: Economic Development Marketing and Attraction Economic Development Strategic Planning Entrepreneurial and Small Business Development Strategies Managing Economic Development Organizations Neighborhood Development Strategies Technology-Led Economic Development Workforce Development Strategies Recertification Requirements Recertification is required every three years. Recertification is based on practitioner based professional development once an individual has been certified. This professional development can come from a variety of sources; however, attendance at least two IEDC events over the three years is required. CEcDs will be expected to attend economic development related meetings, conferences and events. Other options include attendance at an accredited state economic development membership organization meeting, accredited regional economic development membership organization meetings or attendance at other national membership organizations related to economic development. Although attendance at events outside of IEDC will be recognized, IEDC events will be a requirement and will be weighted heavier than non-iedc events.
5 Exceptions to Requirements 1. Professionals who have been in the field of economic development for at least five years will have the option of waiving the required Introduction to Economic Development (or Basic Economic Development Course) course. However, these individuals will still be expected to take a total of six IEDC courses, substituting a third elective for the introductory course. These individuals are responsible for material covered in the Introduction to Economic Development training manual. It is recommended to purchase the training manual for this particular area. 2. Professionals who have taken one of the IEDC accredited Basic Economic Development Courses, are not required to take the IEDC Introduction to Economic Development Course, and only need to take the additional three core courses and two elective courses. 3. Practitioners who have attended the National Development Council s (NDC) ED101 or have obtained the Economic Development Financial Professional (EDFP) designation may waive the Economic Development Credit Analysis requirement. 4. Economic developers who have graduated from a graduate program in economic development (this does not include planning, public policy, or economics) may choose to waive the Basic/Intro course as well as one elective course. These individuals will be required to take the three core courses and one additional elective. Candidates are still responsible for material covered in the Introduction to Economic Development training manual and electives of their choice. It is recommended to purchase the training manuals for those particular topic areas. 5. Candidates having completed 16 hours in a single competency area after attending the Economic Development Institute (EDI) may substitute that for one of IEDC s equivalent courses. To opt out of IEDC core courses, a candidate must demonstrate the equivalent of hours of instruction for the same topic. An EDI attendee must take 16 hours of instruction at EDI in Real Estate Development and Reuse, 16 hours of instruction in Business Retention and Expansion, and 24 hours of instruction in Economic Development Credit Analysis. EDI will assist candidates to determine hours accumulated in a single competency area. 6. Those graduating from EDI who can demonstrate 16 hours of instruction in a specific topic area of electives may use those hours to pass out of the elective course requirements.
6 Examination Procedures Essay Exam The essay exam tests facts, applied decision-making and the candidate s broad knowledge of economic development. This section is comprised of case study developments, none of which will require a calculator. For the essay section, candidates will be required to answer questions on Business Retention & Expansion, Credit Analysis/Finance, and Real Estate Development & Reuse. They will be able to choose two of the seven elective questions for a total of five essays. To provide continuity and consistency, exam questions will cover material that appears in the IEDC manuals, however, a candidate s experience and expertise are expected to be woven into the answer of the essay exam. Hence, a candidate s answer that comes straight from the manual will not be sufficient. Candidates must show applied knowledge in answering these questions. Candidates will have two hours and forty-five minutes to complete this portion of the exam. Multiple Choice/Short Answer Exam The second portion of the written exam is comprised of multiple choice and short answer questions. All the questions for this portion can be referenced in the IEDC manuals. In the Multiple Choice/Short Answer section, candidates will be tested on content from the four (4) core manuals and, in addition, will be able to choose the electives on which they would like to be tested. Candidates must select the electives on which they would like to be tested at the time of application for the exam. Manuals are available for purchase through IEDC s Publications Department and can be purchased for $55 for members and $75 for non-members, plus shipping costs. There is a manual that corresponds with each training course. If you are interested in purchasing a number of manuals, please indicate which manuals you would like to purchase and form of payment to Christina Sabato, Orders for manuals cannot be taken over the phone. For those attending IEDC training courses, manuals are handed out at IEDC training courses and are included in the training course fees. Applicants who do not pass either part of the written exam, essay, or multiple choice and short answer, will have the opportunity to retake that section of the exam (see retake section) at a future time, but must wait a minimum of 60 days before submitting a retake application. Applicants who do not pass either part of the written exam will not be allowed to sit for the oral portion of the exam. Oral Exam An oral exam will be required of each applicant once he/she has passed both written portions of the exam. The oral exam is a formal examination conducted by a panel of three experts and last about an hour in length; 45 minutes to question the candidate and 15 minutes to review the candidate. During this portion, the application will be critiqued on skills and abilities that cannot be graded through a written process. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a broad knowledge of economic development and his/her ability to apply that knowledge based on the questions asked during the oral exam. The oral exam will test applicants abilities to articulate their understanding of issues in economic development. Although questions may be broad or focused, it is during this section that experience counts the most. It gives the candidate an opportunity to talk about his/her experiences and accomplishments in economic development
7 as well as his/her thoughts about the field of economic development. Questions may cover the candidate s direct experience in economic development, areas outside the expertise of the individual, or trends and current practices in the economic development field. Before the oral exam, the candidate will have the chance to review the names of the individuals who will be assessing them. If the candidate feels that there might be a conflict of interest, the candidate can indicate that at that time, and will be provided another individual on the panel. Results Written exam results as well as the oral portion of the exam are Pass or Retake. Candidates will be given written feedback if they do not pass the essay or oral exams. Written feedback is provided to candidates 4-6 weeks following the exam. Critiques are provided only to those who do not pass the exam. Exam results will be posted by Candidate ID numbers, in a pre-designated area the weekend of the exam or via call-in number IEDC provides. If a candidate must be contacted by phone, results will only be given directly to the candidate, not via voic or a message. Each candidate will be awarded a certificate indicating certification and a CEcD pin once it has been determined he or she has fulfilled all requirements and passed all three parts of the exam. Retakes Candidates are permitted to retake any part of the exam they are not successful in. However, the retake application must be completed, with payment, and at the IEDC office 60 days before the exam date for which the candidate would like to sit. There will be an additional retake fee. Candidates who have unsuccessfully taken the exam must retake the exam within two years of their last sitting. After two years the candidate must re-apply to the program and retake any portion they may have passed previously. Preparing for the Exam The CEcD is a practitioner s exam which tests the knowledge of an economic developer through his/her experiences in the field. As such, there are no courses available that are geared toward preparation for the exam. Exam takers should focus on material that is expected to be known by an economic developer, and are encouraged not to memorize the minutia of the manuals. The exam will cover ten competency areas, which have been identified as the core competencies of an economic developer by the IEDC Education and Certification Committee. Those competency areas are: Business Retention and Expansion, Economic Development Credit Analysis, Real Estate Development and Reuse, Economic Development Marketing and Attraction, Strategic Planning, Entrepreneurial and Small Business Development Strategies, Managing Economic Development Organizations, Neighborhood Development Strategies, Technology-Led Economic Development, and Workforce Development Strategies. Please remember that even though the candidates must study the manuals, studying cannot substitute for experience. The manuals put what an economic developer does everyday into context. Hence, they serve as the materials from which the exam is derived, but also assists a practitioner in organizing what he/she does on a daily basis.
