Announcing A New Credential In Urban And Regional Planning

Announcing A New Credential In Urban And Regional Planning

National Certification Commission

A new professional designation, CURP (Certification in Urban and Regional Planning), is now offered with established components, requirements, and recognition items for practitioners (public and private) and educators in our discipline. There are also categories of Honorary CURP and Associate CURP for recent university graduates.

From June 2007 through December 2009, granted provisions for the basic CURP are accepted, and in January 2010 an examination will be introduced. Requirements are outlined on the website. Most certification programs, about 40%, commence with such granted (or experience-based) provisions.

The CURP provides a reasonable option for planners to acquire a certification designation which is affordable and does not include mandatory renewal requirements.

This program is administered through the National Certification Commission in suburban Washington, DC, established in June 1993. The Commission represents 150 national associations with more than 300 certification designations.

The CURP website contains three applications, and more information on webpages such as Frequently Asked Questions and Administration.
