Starting in 2007, obtaining yearly continuous professional learning (CPL) learning units became a requirement for maintaining full or candidate member status with CIP, API and your provincial association. A member must log the required CPL learning units by the end of December each calendar year. Members not in compliance with CPL requirements will not be eligible to use their professional designation as a planner (RPP, LPP, MCIP) and may be suspended or have their membership terminated. For more details, see the Joint-Policy-on-Continuous-Professional-Learning.
Students and pre-candidate members are exempt from the CPL requirements.
Once logged into the Members Only section on the CIP website, the CPL Reporting Form link is located under your name on the left sidebar. CPL activities can then be entered under the Forms section via the Organized/Structured LUs link or the Individual/Unstructured LUs link.
When completing the form in the Organized/Structure LUs section, registered CIP or affiliate events are listed in separate drop down menus.
Event organizers are encouraged to include CPL credit information in their event promotion.
