PIBC Planning 101: An In-Person Full Day Planning Preparation Course

Join us for a fast-paced and intense one-day session to help you through the certification process and prepare for the Professional Standards Board (PSB) Exam! While we can’t guarantee that you’ll ace it, you’ll come away with a good understanding of the exam topics covered, the areas where you’ll want to increase your independent study, and solid strategies for test-taking if you’ve been out of the academic world for a while! Key topics to be covered include planning theory and content, the public interest, ethics and professionalism. This is a “must” course for planning professionals who have been out of the academic world, professionals who have a non-planning degree, and planners who are new to PIBC (coming from other Provinces). 


The course will be facilitated by Dr. Pamela Shaw PhD, MCIP, RPP, FRGS and Lindsay Chase MCP, MCIP, RPP
