The Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) curriculum consists of five courses designed to provide basic knowledge and skills required of co-op directors.
The Board Leadership Certificate (BLC) program offers more advanced courses for directors and can be attained after earning their CCD. To earn the certificate, directors must complete 10 credits from the 900-level courses. Directors may attend the BLC courses at any time, but they must have earned the CCD certificate to be eligible.
The Director Gold (DG) credential recognizes directors who have earned their CCD and BLC credentials and want to continue learning throughout their service on the board.
