Trainings and Events

Business Retention and Expansion International offers both in-person and web-based trainings throughout the year in order to educate and train its members in best practices and skills for BRE.

The continuing education workshops hosted by BREI are written and published by certified BRE trainers (unless expressed otherwise) and are designed specifically for our members’ needs.  Additional non-certification webinars are offered throughout the year to help share ideas and practices from fellow members, sponsors, and experts.
