The NDC Real Estate Development Finance training was one of the most exceptional trainings I have ever had. The instructor was very knowledgeable, patient, and helped to make the material applicable to preservation projects”

“Between the real-life examples and the hands-on assignments, I left the training feeling better equipped to do the work my organization needs me to do for us to be successful”

“I felt I was looking at the rehabilitation world with entirely new eyes despite a decade plus being active on these issues”

The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Development Council

are pleased to again offer a unique training opportunity for preservation professionals, advocates and all those working on historic real estate projects. These high-level, fast-paced, intensive workshops look at the real estate development process including underwriting, appraisals, cash flow, depreciation, passive income/loss, syndication, tax credits and more. The curriculum is based on the National Development Council’s highly regarded real estate finance modules, but has been specifically tailored to address historic preservation projects.
