"It took me nearly three years to get my DFCP certificate. The time was well spent. I keep the manuals handy because I refer to them all the time. The instructors provided current information and lots of innovative ideas. My pipeline of projects increased with each DFCP course that I took. Redeveloping brownfields requires using all the tools my DFCP training provided me. Lots of people talk about economic development. CDFA’s certificate puts you a cut above the rest. The DFCP that follows my name shows that I know how to actually do the talk."
