    Do you need to be licensed to land plan?

    Does the State of Florida license planners? In my state, Illinois, anyone can be a land planner and do financial planning for municipalities? I was curious to know if this is true in other states, or do some states require land planners to be licensed?

    I believe that New Jersey is the only state that licenses professional planners.

    See: http://www.njapa.org/certification/aicp_pp.html

    New Jersey is the only State that requires a license. It is Part 2 of the AICP test, in NJ.

    You get 2 cool sets of letters...

    Licensing

    Florida has practice and title laws governing the acitivities of Architects, Surveyors, Landscape Architects and Professional Engineers. Professional Planners desiring certification are directed to the AICP process through APA. One big difference is of course the State licensing program uses taxpayers dollars to protect the "health, safety and welfare" of the taxpaying public------------
