The Center for Neighborhoods presents a course in ethics for the community.
Ethics is tricky – maintaining professional ethics is a challenge. The first step in addressing this challenge is understanding the ethical rules that go with professionalism.
This course is designed to increase knowledge and understanding of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (the Code). The six-month course is an explanation of the entire Code.
The individual workshops are stand-alone sessions, while at the same time, the sessions are designed so that they build toward the participants becoming better versed in the Code.
This course is of interest to planners as well as others in the community. Participants can earn ethics or general Certification Maintenance (CM) credits. Each webinar is one CM ethic credit.
The cost is $25/session.
