Application Window for AICP Exam Opens June 2nd
On June 2nd, the APA will begin accepting applications for the November 2015 AICP Comprehensive Planning Examination. If you haven’t already considered applying to take the exam, consider this: certification can enhance a planner’s professional credibility, open career opportunities, and boost earning potential. Furthermore, the eligibility requirements for the exam may be lower than you imagined. If you earned a graduate degree in Planning from a program accredited by the PAB, you only need two years of professional planning experience to meet the minimum requirements. If you earned a bachelors degree in Planning from a program accredited by the PAB, you only need three years of experience.
Act fast! The final application deadline is June 30th. More information is available on the APA’s website at: https://www.planning.org/certification/currentexam/.
National APA recognizes that application fee may be an obstacle to some members who wish to apply to take the exam. On behalf of National, the California Chapter administers a scholarship program which evaluates members’ financial assistance needs through a confidential process. Complete information and application due dates are available under the AICP heading on the Chapter’s website under Professional Development. http://www.apacalifornia.org/professional-development/aicp/.
