Make 2022 your year for professional growth and development. Explore the latest available from APA and the American Institute of Certified Planners. From establishing a foundation for ethical practice to earning certification to expanding your knowledge, everything you need is available to achieve your professional development goals.

Start off the year by reviewing the updates to the AICP Code of Ethics. Revisions to the code expand aspirational principles and encourage you to take an active role in social justice and racial equity, respect others, and increase opportunities for underrepresented groups to become professional planners.

Ready to earn your certification this year? AICP certification demonstrates your expertise and commitment to professional ethics, and helps you stand out. Take advantage of the streamlined certification process. Before the exam registration opens, use the interactive experience calculator and other resources to determine your eligibility.
New mandatory CM credits

Stay relevant to the needs of today's communities.
