Thread: Appealing AICP application decisions

    Appealing AICP application decisions

    I am planning on taking the AICP exam either this year or the following year. I am pretty sure that I meat all four criteria for planning experience. My boss, who is a landscape architect, will need to write to the letter summarizing my experience, and he is unfamiliar with AICP. I am concerned that if it is not done correctly, my application will be denied and I will have to postpone taking the exam for several months. Is there anyway to appeal AICP's decision?

    Thanks-

    You ought to call them (AICP) and ask them. I've generally found them to be responsive.

    And you ought to write the summary of your experience yourself to ensure that it addresses what you want it to. Then your boss can modify it as he feels necesaary.

    I wrote the letter and asked my board chair to just sign it.

    I did the same with my supervisor. This is probably your best course of action if you want to ensure that everything that needs to be covered is in your letter.

    Yeah, my old boss wrote up a draft and emailed it to me, asked me if it included everything I thought was relevant. I suggested a couple additions, and it was done. My current boss at the time had me write it up myself, and then he just signed it.
