The CPP Study group is hosted by PPSCV for members and non-members.

Please register for the event to receive the Zoom link (new members only)

PPSCV CPP Liaison John Gayler will be taking us through the process from declaring to certification and beyond.

Bring your questions, and continue the journey with like-minded photographers looking to identify and fill gaps in their technical knowledge, develop confidence that they are well prepared for their craft, and get an edge in your marketing to clients that have confidence in you.

The goal is to create a local community for sharing knowledge and support on your journey and see if you can complete the CPP certification in 2022! (Tip, you most likely can ;-)

Note that in 2022, PPA temporarily suspended the PPA CPP Liaison position, so this program is offered as an unofficial and independent resource to help people on their CPP journey.
