CM Providers

The Certification Maintenance program links AICP-certified planners to education and training opportunities so they may earn mandatory credits and remain current with the latest trends, technologies, and best practices.

Certification Maintenance (CM) providers are educational organizations approved by AICP to provide continuing education activities and events for CM credits. All education providers, including APA and its chapters and divisions, must apply to become CM providers.

AICP markets all CM-approved activities through its online CM Search. Approved organizations are also included in the online directory of CM providers. It's an opportunity to reach 16,000 professional planners who are looking for professional development activities such as conferences, workshops, lectures, or web-based training such as online courses, webcasts, and podcasts.
