Certification Maintenance

Certification Maintenance (CM) strengthens the value of AICP certification, demonstrating ongoing commitment to excellence to elected officials, community leaders, and employers. AICPs must earn 32 credits for approved training over a 2 year cycle, including 1.5 credits for law and 1.5 credits for ethics. There are multiple opportunities to earn CM credit, including free webcast courses, the PA Chapter’s annual conference, and other events. For a full listing of CM training available in Pennsylvania, visit the AICP CM Opportunities list. For additional information on the CM program, visit APA’s AICP website section.
