AICP Certification Maintenance

The first reporting period for Certification Maintenance began January 1, 2008, and ends December 31, 2009.  During each reporting period, AICP members must earn a total of 32 CM credits (1 hour = 1 CM credit).* A minimum of 1.5 credits must be on the topic of ethics, and another 1.5

credits must be on the topic of current planning law.  A member who exceeds the required 32 credits may carry over a total of 16 credits to the next reporting period, but cannot carry over the law and ethics credits.

 

* AICP members who received a CPD certificate valid to the end of 2009 will begin their reporting period on January 1, 2010.

 

Program Details

AICP members must earn a total of 32 CM credits (1 hour = 1 CM credit) within their two-year reporting period. AICP members may report credits for activities that were registered since April 14, 2007, and will have an automatic four month-grace period, without penalty, so members are able to continue to earn and log credits for their reporting through April 30 to complete the CM requirement.

 

A minimum of 1.5 credits must be on the topic of ethics, and another 1.5 credits must be on the topic of current planning law. AICP members may carry over a maximum of 16 credits from one reporting period into the subsequent reporting period; however, ethics and planning law credits cannot be carried over to the next two-year reporting period. AICP members who do not meet CM requirements within four years will lose AICP certification and will be obliged to seek recertification in order to regain the AICP credential.

 

All professional development activities must be approved and registered to be eligible for CM credit and recorded into your online CM log.

Hot Topics in Planning Law

Professional planners must stay current on changes in the law in order to practice effectively. This interactive course gives planners the information they need to know about three evolving areas of the law: property rights; signs and billboards; and climate change law.

From digital billboards to AB 32; from the Next Generation Energy Act of 2007 to green building codes; from Oregon’s Measure 49 to the impact of Kelo v. the City of New London, learn the latest in how changes in the law impact how planners work.

Ethical Practice for Practicing Planners

Ethical Practice for Practicing Planners explains the tenets of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and challenges participants to analyze situations, reflect on dilemmas, and apply the code. Throughout the course, planning ethics experts discuss how they might respond to several proposed scenarios.

This course is not intended to serve as a Formal Advisory Ruling under the provisions of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Rather, the course begins to address some of the ethical challenges planners may face and highlight available resources for further information or reflection.
