IAP2 Training – First Step to Professional Certification

Did you know that completion of the IAP2 Foundations in Public Participation training program is your first step in becoming a Certified Public Participation Professional?

IAP2 Canada has just launched the pilot of its Canadian Professional Certification program. This is your opportunity to take your IAP2 training and years of experience to a new level by affirming your skills and knowledge within the certification program. The entire multi-step assessment process will take several months and culminates with a face-to-face Assessment Centre in November.  And the first step is to complete the 5-day IAP2 training program!

The application and assessment process is based on five core competencies that were identified through the membership consultation process: 

  • P2 Process Planning and Application
  • P2 Event Planning and Implementation
  • Appropriate Use of Tools and Techniques
  • P2 Communication Skills
  • P2 People Skills

A full list of the Canadian core competencies, along with more information on the application process are on the IAP2 website - http://iap2canada.ca/certification

CTC partners, Jan Bloomfield and Gay Robinson are on the Canadian Certification Task Force and we welcome this new level of accreditation for our field of practice.
