Introduction to MCEA Workshop
June 18 - 20 (3-days), 2024 (1:30pm to 4:00pm)
Learn what the Class EA process is all about from an instructor who has conducted many such planning exercises since the inception of the Municipal Class EA over 35 years ago. This course/webinar qualifies for 7.5 CPD/CEU hours.
- Discover how the Municipal Class EA planning process works, and how it can be your best friend in bringing a project from concept through construction.
- Discover how the process, that may at first seem complex, is really quite easy to follow and use. Learn why and how this planning process is “owned” by the municipality rather than the government, and how flexible the process can be.
- Acquire knowledge on how you get to decide how to use the MCEA process to plan your own projects.
- Discover how you can manage the planning process to suit your projects, through devices like how to develop a Problem Statement, and how to evaluate alternatives.
- Also learn about the planning work going forward to amend and streamline the MCEA process.
