I'm trying to determine my eligibility for the AICP certification. I was curious if a combination of professional experience and education would qualify. I'm going for my Master's part-time for an MPA in Urban and Regional Planning and working full-time as a Community Planner. I've been planning professionally for 2.5 years (3 years at the end of 2011), I have a 10 mos. experience as a planning intern, and will have 2 years of a Master's under my belt, slated to finish Summer 2012. (My undergrad is not an accredited planning degree - B.A. Geography).
I was wondering with 3 years exp, 2 years Masters, 10 mos. Interning would qualify for either the 3 yr or 4 yr requirement for 2012 testing. Or shall I just wait for 2013 when I have 4 years and a completed Masters.
Many thanks for your opinions.
