Land Use Commissioner Training

2023/2024 Training Calendar

As of January 1, 2023, planning and zoning commissioners in the State of Connecticut are required to complete at least four hours of training as required under the Section 8-4c of Connecticut General Statutes. For more information on these requirements, review the CT Office of Policy and Management (OPM) guidelines here.

UConn CLEAR, in collaboration with OPM, has set up a statewide Land Use Commissioner Training Calendar to help towns and commissioners locate training opportunities in line with these requirements. This includes events from providers throughout the state. Click under each date on the calendar for further information about a training. There are also ongoing virtual trainings offered by CLEAR and CT DEEP that may meet training requirements. Explore the CT DEEP and UConn CLEAR Training tabs above for self-paced online training courses and other opportunities.

If you are a training provider and would like to add events to this calendar, please fill out this form and your event will be added once approved.

Please note: There is no certification process for these trainings. It is left up to individual town commissions to determine which trainings meet the guidelines.
