Continuing Professional Learning Program

Required ongoing professional development or learning is common and widely considered a best practice for most professions and professional associations like SPPI. The SPPI Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program was developed to achieve this best practice and to ensure that all practicing professional planners remain current with contemporary theory, methods, skills and knowledge within their profession.

The SPPI CPL system is outlined in detail in the SPPI CPL System Guide. It describes the policies and guidelines for the completion, reporting and administration of ongoing professional development to be undertaken by every professional member of SPPI in Saskatchewan. This includes all active Certified members or RPPs and Candidate members. 

Any professional learning or practice activities, is eligible for CPL reporting as long as it is in the realm of the core competencies for the planning profession. Candidate and RPP Members are required to self-report learning using the guide of 1.0 hour of learning equals 1.0 LU.
Access to your CIP Member Profile and CPL reporting portal is now available on the CIP website:

1. Go to the CIP website: Home | CIP (cip-icu.ca) click on the Member Profile
2. Click on the SPPI logo PTIA Member Login | CIP (cip-icu.ca)
3. In your profile, in the side menu click ‘Record/View CPL Activities’

To help navigate the process, view this video tutorial to walk you through the steps. Annual CPL Reporting Deadline is December 31st. However, members are encouraged to acquire and report their CPL early and throughout the year.

If you are a Registered Professional Planner or Candidate Member of SPPI and in need of additional CPL’s, our Learning Centre can provide resources or stay tuned on our events page and e-news for upcoming events that qualify for CPL’s.
