The Association of Climate Change Officers (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 combination of on-demand online training resources 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 and community leaders about the implications of climate change, and related opportunities, with a regional focus added for the Midwest United States. Professionals across occupations in the public and private sectors, higher education and the NGO community will benefit from this training series.
