The PA Municipal Planning Education Institute will be conducting a Train-the-Trainer class to prepare instructors to teach the PMPEI Course in Subdivision and Land Development Review. The training consists of two weekend sessions, Friday and Saturday, October 6 and 7, and Saturday, October 21. and will be held in State College. The training program will also include instruction for teaching the PMPEI online course, Managing the Subdivision Review Process.
The Course in Subdivision and Land Development Review Course is an in-depth, 10-hour, newly revised course intended to help students master the complex and time-sensitive review process, as well as teaching them how these regulations are an integral part of a community’s planning process. In sharing your knowledge and experience you will be helping local officials become better planners.
2023 is PMPEI’s 31st year as the PA Chapter/American Planning Association’s principal educational outreach to planning commissioners and local officials. Courses are set up at convenient sites- usually in municipal facilities- so they are close to where students are located. As an instructor you will be joining about 50 other professionals who teach in the PMPEI program that reaches about 1,400 officials a year. PMPEI Instructors are paid for teaching courses, and also receive travel and meal reimbursement. Teaching assignments are set up to keep travel time reasonable for instructors.
If you have at least five years’ experience in planning in Pennsylvania and would like to be a PMPEI Instructor, contact Stanford Lembeck, AICP, at email@example.com. The registration fee for the three-day training is $150, and class size is limited. A registration form, with additional information about the PMPEI Planning and Zoning Course Program, will be sent to you.
