NOTICE: Self-Certification Classes Cancelled through April due to COVID-19.

The Phoenix Planning and Development Department is cancelling all Self-Certification Classes for the month of April. At this time, we do not know when they will be rescheduled.

We understand many of you need April training to meet three-year re-certification and renewal requirements. We are creating a grace period for all self-certified professionals that fall into this category; the grace period will extend until the required training sessions can be rescheduled.

The next scheduled SCP training is on June 11 for general Self-Certification Renewal. At this time, this class remains scheduled. We will inform you as soon as possible if this class will be impacted by the coronavirus response.

If you have paid for an April class, we will provide refunds or we can apply your funds to the June (or future) class.



The Self-Certification Program:​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Self-Certification Program eliminates plan review by allowing a registered professional to take responsibility for and certify a project's compliance with building code, standards and ordinances. Depending on the scope of the project, permits can be issued within one to five business days. The expanded program includes most buildings over 25,000 square feet; inventory, salvage, landscape and parking lot plans by landscape architects; and grading and drainage and parking lot plans by civil engineers.
