Jacob's thoughts regarding the CLED Training Program:

"In my opinion, the CLED program is the benchmark for the State of Louisiana's local, state and federal officials and private entities within state. This certification provides a wealth of practical information, to include experienced application from industry professionals with specific subject matter expertise, which allows for a well-rounded experience for everyone involved. I highly recommend the "CLED Experience" for anyone interested in learning in-depth economic development information, industry's bests practices, while engaging their peers and individuals with proven successful track records."
