Certified Purchasing Card Professional

The NAPCP has been awarding the Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) credential since 2006 to Commercial Card and Payment professionals who have demonstrated a mastery of the body of knowledge in the specialized field of Purchasing Cards.


"Shortly after receiving notification that I passed the CPCP exam, the Manager of Travel and Accounts Payable customized a job posting for me as Senior Analyst and Company Card Administrator. Not only is there a financial benefit to my new position, but there is also a great sense of pride in achieving a higher position within the company."
