Training Program and Scholarship to help Central Valley APA Members
prepare for the 2020 AICP Certification Exam


Central Valley APA Members… Do you want to become a certified planner through the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP)? If your answer is yes, here’s your chance to participate in a distance learning training program and AICP Scholarship Program!

In a unique partnership, the Central Section of CA APA is pairing up “remotely” with the San Diego Section of the APA for a joint training session consisting of four training sessions (3-hours each) over two months in February and March 2020 (for $85) (The four training dates are set for Saturday, February 8 and 22 and March 7 and 21, 2020.)

The registration link for the four training sessions can be accessed by Clicking Here.

Short on funds? The Central Section is offering two AICP scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded on a “first-come, first-serve” basis, based on the following two-step process: 


  • Step 1: Submit your letter of interest after APA has approved your application to sit for the AICP exam, and before the exam registration deadline; this will form the eligibility list. (The registration deadline for the May 2020 test will be in late April 2020.)

  • Step 2: Submit your receipts after taking the exam, with a signed letter stating that your employer will not cover the costs. Chronological order of receipts received will determine funding priority.


E-mail statements of interest to Carolina Ilic, Central APA Professional Development Officer, at  Carolina will maintain a list of eligible recipients, based on the letters of interest submitted before the exam registration deadline. After the exam, eligible planners that submit their receipts and signed letter will receive the scholarship funds, of up to $500, on a reimbursement basis, in chronological order received. Pending interest and available funds, the APA Board could decide to increase the number of scholarships awarded upon a formal vote of the Board.
