Congratulations on making the important decision to become a Certified Professional Photographer!
There are three components to CPP certification:
Declaration of Candidacy is your first step towards becoming a Certified Professional Photographer. Once you've declared your candidacy, you will have two years to successfully complete the two additional requirements: the Certification Exam and the Image Submission Review.
Candidates are required to pass the Certification Exam before they are allowed to participate in the Image Submission. After successfully passing the exam candidates will confirm their skill with the Image Submission. If you do not complete all requirements during the two year period, your candidacy will end. You must re-apply, pay the appropriate fee, and re-start the process.
