What are your thoughts about these certificates? I've heard mixed reviews on the AICP. Ive worked with certified planners that didnt know basic zoning principles etc. Its really just a test about planning theory and major court cases isnt it? What type of employers require it? In Australia, CPP (like AICP) is a joke and the maintenance fees are insane. Most employers dont even ask for it,but its 3 letters to next to your name. What about LEED certification? Ive seen recent grads with no experience except for university have LEED credentials.. I can see LEED for architects and engineers, but can someone explain the benefits for planners. Thank you.
