APA Launches Ethics and Law Online Training, HIA Course Remains Free

With the launch of two new courses from APA, AICP members now have
even more affordable, convenient, and interactive options for
fulfilling CM requirements.

Ethical Practice for Practicing Planners (2.0| CM, $49.95) explains
the tenets of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and
challenges participants to analyze situations, reflect on dilemmas,
and apply the code. Throughout the course, planning ethics experts
discuss how they might respond to several proposed scenarios.

Hot Topics in Planning Law (3.0|CM, $99.95) provides practicing
planners with an understanding of the latest developments in planning
law. From digital billboards to AB 32; from the Next Generation
Energy Act of 2007 to green building codes; from Oregon's Measure 49
to the impact of Kelo v. the City of New London, the course
illustrates how changes in the law impact how planners
work. Available late June.

In addition, APA is pleased to announce that its popular course,
Planning for Healthy Communities with Health Impact Assessments, will
remain free of charge through June 30, 2010.
