Income And Asset Development 101

AC CAN is now running an introductory training called Income and Asset Development 101 (IAD 101).  The training is ideal for new staff at AC CAN member organizations and other partners new to the field of income and asset development, but whose work relates to income and asset development (e.g., workforce development, re-entry service providers, etc.) The interactive one-and-a-half-hour course provides participants with basic knowledge of the income and asset development field and where to find providers of many types of services.  It uses case studies to apply new skills, and participants walk away with a host of new resources from the asset development sector.

If you would like to schedule an IAD 101 training for your staff or partners, contact us.
