CPP Study Guide

Important Message for “Get PPA Certified” Users


If you have not yet passed the exam, then I have important news for you!

As you may have heard, last week, PPA announced that there will be changes coming to the current CPP Test Specifications. This is done every two-three years in order to keep the exam current. Each cycle, items are added, and items are removed.

The current Test Specifications will remain in effect through February of 2022. In other words, if you have been preparing to take the CPP Exam, you have until the end of February 2022 to pass the exam using the current specifications.

All exams administered beginning March 1, 2022, will utilize the new Test Specifications.

If you have been preparing using the materials at GetPPACertified.com, you have been preparing on the current Test Specifications.

I encourage you to make every effort to try and get your exam passed between now and the end of February.

CPP_logo_9_11CPP WB 1-29-16 Edit.pubI am pleased to introduce my CPP Study Guide for those who are considering preparing to become a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) through Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

The Certified Professional Photographer program from PPA assures potential clients of a photographer’s knowledge, experience and continued development of new skills and techniques. In short, Certification provides you with a tool for telling the world—and all those potential clients—why they should call you rather than a competitor down the street. Click here to learn more about PPA Certification.

cumulaiveThis study guide addresses each of the topics covered on the CPP Test Specifications provided by PPA. It is written in easy to understand language that feels more conversational – not technical.

The guide is created in color and is filled with illustrations and images to support the process of learning the material and preparing for the test.
