Certification must still be applied for separately and there are separate fees for the processing of the application.

The CPP instructor sends students an email with initial instructions for the certified purchasing professional certification course by the Monday date that the course is scheduled to begin. The CPP study guide (PDF) is emailed to students sometime during the week before the certified purchasing professional certification course begins.
