Settlement Practitioner Certification

Mountain Summit

AAISA continues to offer Canada’s only certification program for qualified settlement practitioners.

The Settlement Practitioner certification is based on a balanced assessment of an applicant’s knowledge, skills and training. Practitioners are certified as Level 2 or Level 3, recognizing respective competency levels and experience in the field.

Guidelines for Certification

Settlement Practitioners who meet the specified requirements are eligible for Level 2 or Level 3. Please read our Guidelines for Certification. Additionally, we recommend applicants review our Portfolio Checklist to guide their application process.


To apply, please download the AAISA Certification Application, fill it out, and submit it before the deadline.

Due to committee meeting limitations during the pandemic, the next certification deadline will be postponed. All previous applications received will be assessed at the next deadline. The deadline will be announced here and in AAISA’s newsletter once more information becomes available.

Please note: AAISA recognizes training from several institutions for the purpose of Settlement Practitioner certification. Candidates with prior training fall into the Prior Learning Assessment & Recognition (PLAR) category.
