Become a Certified Public Participation Professional!

The Certification Program is a professional designation available to IAP2 Canada members. 

Certification proves, through independent assessment, that you have demonstrated the basic knowledge and skills required to perform the role of public participation (P2) professional. IAP2 created the Certification Program in response to requests by members and practitioners around the globe for a professionalization of the field and standards for practitioners. 

Professional certification requires a formal and independent assessment that an individual meets industry-defined standards for performance.

The Professional Certification Program offers two levels of professional certification: 

Certified Public Participation Professional (CP3)
