Becoming a Registered Professional Planner (RPP) requires a University degree, usually in Planning or a related discipline. In addition, a minimum of two years practical experience in a Land Use Planning environment is typically required. After this, the professional governing body requires candidates to pass written examinations to prove their knowledge of the ‘Professional Code of Practice’, and specifically matters concerning the public interest, professional responsibility and ethics.
Planning is a relatively unique profession, as the outcomes of a professional planner’s work affects everyone and has long-term impacts on our communities and the spaces around us: planners carry with them a big responsibility!
