Do you have what it takes to be a certified Public Participation Professional?

201706 EB Certification brandedAs many of you are aware you can apply for the IAP2 USA Certification Program at any time of the year and this is welcomed. This communication is to let you know that IAP2 USA will be hosting an Assessment Center on November 17th and 18th for CP3 applicants, location to be confirmed. So if you are planning on becoming certified in 2017 and want to attend please get your application into us by July 28, 2017.

Ask yourself – Do I know how to:

  • work with a sponsor to understand the decision to be made
  • define clear objectives and design a P2 process
  • identify who should be involved in the P2 process and how to engage them
  • pick the right tools and techniques and know how to use them
  • spot potential for conflict and decide how to manage it
  • communicate effectively — orally and in writing
  • work successfully with the public

If you answered YES! to these questions, then you may have the Core Competencies of the P2 profession and it’s time to step up to the next level and become a Certified Public Participation Professional!

Certification is the way to show the world that you know your stuff — the same way architects, engineers and other professionals are expected to meet a global standard — and that when someone hires you, they’re getting a professional who will deliver a true P2 process.

So plan to apply. The deadline for the November 17/18 Assessment Center is August 11, 2017!

How to apply?

  • Make sure you’ve completed the “Foundations” course (formerly known as the “Certificate course”) and that you are an IAP2 member.
  • Download the Information Kit and Frequently Asked Questions
  • Attend the informational webinar to learn details about completing the application

 The Certification Process has been developed over the past three years by your own P2 colleagues in Canada, the USA and Southern Africa, using input gathered from IAP2 members.

Visit the Certification web page to find out more.

We’re looking forward to your taking part!
