National AICP Exams

To become a certified planner and use the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) designation, one must be a current member of the American Planning Association, submit an application meeting certain education and experience requirements, pass an examination, and be a fully paid member of APA and AICP.

The AICP exam is currently offered twice per year, in the fall and spring. The testing window for the two exam periods are posted on the APA's website at http://www.planning.org/certification/ . The exam is offered electronically at testing sites throughout the NY metro area that are disclosed upon acceptance of your AICP application.
