Parks Practitioner Designation Program

Parks employees are a wealth of experience and knowledge, and we want to help recognize that. We hope applying for the Intermediate and Advanced designations in this program will assist members in planning their professional development goals, and give them confidence in the knowledge they have in their field. This program will also help employers confidently choose employees, knowing they have the skills required to competently do the job.
