How Do I Become a CPP?

To achieve the CPP, candidates must pass a 150-question online exam covering topics, including operations, safety, finance and human resources.

The CPP Study Road Map and the CPP Study Guide, provided with the exam, serve as the official reference manuals to assist you in preparing for the exam. NPA offers a CPP Summit to help you prepare.

Once you apply for the CPP program (NPA Members: $400, Non-Members: $700), you will have two opportunities to take the online exam within one year. Learn more.
