About our IAP2 Training
Delaney + Associates is highly regarded and much sought out for its International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) training.
We offer the IAP2 five-day Foundations in Effective Public Participation program several times a year, in Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver and other Canadian cities. Organizational and hosted Foundations programs are also available.
Based on what is widely recognized as the international gold standard in engagement planning – a rigorous, five-step planning process – the IAP2 Foundations program is must-have training for practitioners and novices alike, and a requirement for those interested in professional public participation certification.
Learn from our highly-experienced and talented trainers. Take the prerequisite three-day Planning for Effective Public Participation module on its own and follow up with the two-day Techniques for Effective Public Participation module at a later time, or take the two modules as back-to-back training. Either way, this training provides opportunities for immediate and practical on-the-job application.
Please call Valerie or Brenda at 613-837-5890 for inquiries and assistance.
