Why should you apply for a CP3? Here’s what others have said:
… to demonstrate my capability in the public engagement field, assist in the growth of the engagement branch of my company … I have been involved in public and Indigenous engagement for nearly a decade and this is the next logical step for my career.
A career in P2 is an incredibly rewarding source of joy and opportunity for life-long learning – about our communities, about people, about ourselves … my passion lies in helping organizations have conversations with people about changes that are taking place in their city. It may sound cheesy, but it’s all I want to do, every day.
(I) love … working with people (and using) my organizational skills to tactfully navigate complex systems while giving a voice to those who aren’t always heard. I feel like now is the time to seek formal recognition for the last 10+ years of dedication I’ve shown to advancing the practice of P2 through my volunteer and professional work.

The designation “Certified Public Participation Professional” (CP3) indicates that you meet or exceed an internationally-recognized set of standards as a P2 practitioner. It means you possess the Core Competencies and have an established “track record” in the field. (It is not the same as receiving a “Certificate of Completion” in the IAP2 Foundations course.)
