2020 National Planning Conference

CM & CEU Credits

Earning Continuing Education Credits

AICP Certification Maintenance

At NPC19, AICP members have the opportunity to earn up to 24 or more CM credits — including credits in law and ethics. That's two-thirds of the CM credits required in an entire two-year reporting period. Notice: AICP members claiming credit for a session are required to remain in the session for the duration in order to receive CM credit

User Tips: When you search the conference program, choose to filter activities by CM status: CM Credit, Law Credit, or Ethics Credit. If you are looking for CM credit, make sure one of these filters is activated — not all sessions carry CM credit. If you are a speaker/presenter, don't forget to claim one additional CM credit for preparation by clicking the box to confirm "I was a speaker/instructor."

For additional help with logging your in-person CM credits, view the visual CM logging guide.

Bonus: You can earn additional CM credits from NPC19 after the conference. Registration includes post-conference access to session recordings in APA Learn. These credits can be logged directly from the APA Learn course. Learn more about logging CM in APA Learn.

Other Organizations

APA provides the opportunity to earn professional continuing education units from the following organizations:

  • Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA-CES)
  • American Institute of Architects
  • Illinois continuing legal education program run through the Minimum
    Continuing Legal Education Board of the Supreme Court of Illinois (MCLE)

Sessions approved to offer continuing education units for one of the above organizations will have evaluation and sign in sheets located at the front of the room. After attending the full session, you must sign in and complete an evaluation for the course. You must complete these forms for each session that you are claiming credit for. Attendees who do not sign in AND complete an evaluation will not have their attendance reported nor have completion certificates issued.

A list of approved courses for each of the organizations listed above may be found by searching the full program for “AIA”, “ASLA” or “MCLE.”
