Certified Profesionals in Training
For those packagers having fewer than six years of academic and/or work experience, a Certified Professionals in Training (CPIT) program is offered.
In this program, candidates begin by completing the Multiple Choice Test, then complete the second certification requirement upon concluding their sixth year in packaging.
Candidates submit registration with a partial fee to begin the process. Balance of the total fee is due upon submission of the second part of the procedure.
To retain CPP status, and attain lifetime certification, Certified Packaging Professionals are required to maintain IoPP membership and demonstrate continuing involvement in packaging by recertifying twice.
The CPP must apply for recertification five years after initial certification, and a second time, five years after initial recertification by doing one of the following:
A) Submit a current “resume of activities” form with a work resume attached which updates experience and participation in packaging-related activities over the previous five-year period.
B) Pass one of the recertification tests then in effect.
C) Submit a new paper written on a technical or management topic.
D) Submit a solely owned patent.
Having satisfied the requirement of two recertification cycles, the Certified Packaging Professional is considered qualified for the remainder of his or her career, provided current IoPP membership is retained.
