AICP Candidate Pilot Program
Paths to AICP
The AICP Commission is expanding the benefits of the AICP Candidate Pilot Program to all APA members by creating a single, unified path to AICP certification. Due to these upcoming enhancements, enrollment into the AICP Candidate program is no longer available. The next opportunity to start earning AICP will be registering for the new One Path to AICP in Spring of 2022.
Already In the Candidate Program?
Members who are currently enrolled and need to submit their graduation verification document may do so at the link below. Current candidates will be moved into the new One Path to AICP — no action is needed on your part. Candidates will not have to repeat any steps they have already successfully completed.
UPDATE GRADUATION STATUS
The window to submit education verification documents has closed. The next window will open in Spring 2022.

Registering for the exam:
- Register for the exam by paying a $100 exam fee in December–April (for the May exam) or in June–October (for the November exam);
