Changes to the 2022 AICP Exam Outline
2022 Updates to the Code of Ethics
Have you heard the news? APA has updated the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (effective January 1, 2022).
This means there's some changes you should consider while you're studying for your upcoming AICP Exam. Those updates are summarized below.
"The Aspirational Principles were organized into logical groupings to highlight the planners’ role in serving the public interest.
Additionally, changes to the Principles:
• More fully account for the planners’ role in social justice and racial equity while accepting our responsibility to eliminate historic patterns of inequity tied to planning decisions
• Respect the rights of others and prohibit discrimination against or harassment of others
• Increase opportunities for members of underrepresented groups to become professional planners
The Rules of Conduct were organized into logical groupings to increase clarity for compliance.
Additionally, changes to the Rules:
• Eliminate geographic inconsistencies for how the Rules of Conduct are enforced
• Clarify types of additional employment that would create an actual or perceived conflict of interest
• Require an AICP member to cooperate with the AICP Ethics Officer if they have information relevant to a charge filed against another AICP member."

What to Expect When You're Expecting...To Take the AICP Exam
We were on Episode 3 of The VERY UNofficial AICP Study Guide Podcast breaking down what to expect from the AICP exam. From how many questions are on the exam to the topics that the AICP exam covers, we’re breaking it down for you.
Welcome to Planning Certification, Your One-Stop Shop For AICP Exam Study Materials.
I realized there was a secret sauce to passing the exam: putting the study material in a format that was easy (and * gasp * even enjoyable) to read, and having someone to ask about the exam.
THAT’S WHY we created Planning Certification - to streamline studying for you! Two AICP planners came together to develop study guides that included all the tables and charts, chicken-scratch notes in our margins, and everything we found to be essential to our studies. Now it’s all in one place. Just for you.
