About the CPCP Program
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.
The CPCP credential is awarded to P-Card professionals who have demonstrated experience and understanding of the body of knowledge necessary to administer a Purchasing Card program. This credential focuses on individual skills and knowledge of specialized P-Card functions. Achieving this designation allows P-Card professionals to be recognized for their exemplary level of expertise.
Professional recognition distinguishes individuals as having mastered the relevant body of knowledge and shows a commitment to the industry. It defines the benchmark standard for professionals in the P‑Card industry and provides evidence to employers that you have been examined by a certifying organization. It also establishes the level of knowledge required to administrate a program and encourages personal and professional growth. Certification differentiates those that are knowledgeable, trained, competent and dedicated to their profession.
The Purchasing Card Professional Certification Council (PCPCC) was created to manage all aspects of this credentialing program. The PCPCC ensures the accuracy, compliance, confidentiality and quality of the CPCP credential. This council works in conjunction with the NAPCP directors, managing the necessary processes to uphold a rigorously administered certification.
