Certification Maintenance Credits

Several NJRA RTI courses have been approved through the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) to receive certification maintenance credits.    AICP's Certification Maintenance program strengthens the value of certification, demonstrating your ongoing commitment to excellence to elected officials, community leaders, and employers.
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 a four month-grace period beyond their reporting period 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 can 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.
