CPCP Supporting Documentation for the Exam Application

Supporting Documentation Requirements

This page is intended for individuals who plan to apply for the CPCP exam and need to know how to document their point-eligible endeavors. 


Overview of Supporting Documentation

Obtain documentation of each potential point-qualifying activity. Note: Point-eligible endeavors within the categories of professional development/continuing education and industry participation must have been completed within 36 months of an applicant's selected testing period to qualify.

Copies of the supporting documentation will need to be collectively submitted to the Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) in conjunction with the application process.

Tip: Within your NAPCP profile (Manage Profile option), scroll down to access your NAPCP event registrations. Click on the event name to review more information and/or print a copy of your receipt.



Supporting Documentation

Note: It is not enough to simply provide a letter from your manager to document all earned points. You need separate documentation, per the guidelines below, for each point-eligible endeavor.

The CPCP Application Points Claim Form (application supplement) also provides notes about the required supporting documentation requirements for each endeavor.
