Why Take A Planetizen Course?
Learn effectively with video. Our instructors can walk you step-by-step through complicated software tools, and you can always rewind if you miss something.
Advance your career. Social media, mapping tools, urban design software - these are the sorts of skills that employers want you to understand today.
Take advantage of our expertise. We're an urban planning website run by a web development company, so we've got mad tech skills and we know planning.
Break down complicated lessons. Courses are divided into easy-to-digest chapters of 5-10 min. on average, so you can get to the content you need to learn quickly and easily.
Get credit for your work. Certificates of completion are available for each course, and the Ethics course counts for 3 CM credits and 1.5 Ethics credits for AICP maintenance.
Get personal. Most courses have video of the instructor embedded in the corner of the screen, which adds a level of connection and nuance that encourages learning.
Watch fresh content. We'll be adding new courses and videos to the site throughout the year, adding more content and value without raising the price.
Bookmark the important bits. You can create your own playlist of the most important lessons for easy reference.
Go mobile. Planetizen courses are presented in Flash and HTML5, so they can be accessed on your smartphone, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
