Late 2011, several state and division chapters of the American Planning Association banded together to cooperatively host a series of educational webinars for members of the respective organizations. In addition to a number of webinars eligible for Certification Maintenance (CM), the chapters will host a series of webinars in February and March 2012 to help prepare planners for the AICP (American Institute of Certified Planners) exam. Specifically, experienced instructors from the Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina chapters will present information during the 2012 AICP Exam Review webinar series.
Beginning February 10 through March 30, instructors will present during 2 hour webinars each Friday morning between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. EST. The webinars will cover the following topics:
February 10 – Exam Overview
February 10 – Spatial Analysis of Planning Practice
February 17 – Functional Areas of Planning Practice
February 24- Public Participation and Social Justice
March 2- Plan Making and Implementation
March 9 – Research and Quantitative Methods
March 16- Planning Law
March 23- AICP Code of Ethics
March 30 – Planning History and Theory
Up to 1000 participants from chapters participating in the webinar cooperative (please consult with your chapter’s Professional Development Officer to learn if your chapter is a member of the co-op) will be able to register for the course for free. Most presentation materials and webcasts will be available after the meeting.
