CPD courses tailored to the needs of early-career planners



In response to calls for courses suitable for planners in the early stages of their careers, NZPI has developed a range of new courses focussed on Resource Consents and Plan-making. The first of these courses have been recently run and received a great response from those who attended.

“This course was really valuable in solidifying my understanding of the RMA process and consent process”

“a must-do course for new consent officers”

“fantastic, will be very valuable to future professional practice”


These courses are taught by two very experienced presenters who consistently receive very high ratings from attendees, Dr Lee Beattie and Gina Sweetman

“the presenters were both great and personable”

“a wealth of knowledge and skills in this area”

“great, really approachable to talk to”


Schedule for these courses for the remainder of 2015:
