Certification Maintenance for AICP Members

Certification MaintenanceCertified planners have demonstrated their commitment to high standards of professional practice. The example they set daily in their work and in their communities enhances the credibility of the planning profession. AICP's new Certification Maintenance program gives certified planners another means of strengthening that credibility. The program will help planners gain the knowledge and skills necessary to remain current in the practice of planning and continue to demonstrate professional credibility through continuing education.

This page will be updated as more information becomes available to our membership. In the meantime, please visit the following link for more information:
