How to Prepare for Certification

NPA offers many networking and education opportunities to help you prepare for the exam and ensure your skills are up-to-date.

CPP Exam Study Materials

CPP Study Guide

Official Reference Manual for the CPP Exam. Provided when you apply to the CPP Program. Also, available for download from the NPA bookstore >>

The Study Guide was developed as a national source for the body of knowledge for the parking industry. It is recognized that individual companies, institutions and/or municipalities may have their own operational guidelines; however, candidates should answer the test questions correctly based on the information found in the Study Guide.

Use the Study Guide to study and review the examination outline. Answer the sample questions in the Study Guide to help familiarize yourself with the nature and format of the kinds of questions that will appear on the examination. If there are issues you do not understand in the Study Guide, review them with your supervisor.
