Continuous professional development has long been one of the key focuses of the Institute, which offers different education and training activities being initiated to promote town planning and further professional knowledge of members.
Our planning system has experienced considerable changes over the past few years. In order to enable members to gain a broader understanding on current planning practices, the Institute is organizing training courses in April/May 2016 covering different areas of statutory planning work.
The training courses comprise discussion sessions to be conducted at the Institute by town planners with practical experience from the public and private sector. Arrangements of the training course are listed below, and the content of the training courses is attached for reference.
