Courses offered by AFP Calgary
The new AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course (as it will now be known) will be available for AFP Chapters to offer within their programs starting May 1, 2010.

This 16 hr course is meant to be taught in an active learning style and includes case studies and projects for groups and individuals, making the learning experience both substantive and enjoyable. The AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course offers a complete overview of the development function, featuring the most current information and techniques and will provide an overview of skills, techniques and program components for individuals with zero to four years of fundraising experience.
