IoPP’s multiple-choice test is based on the recently published Fundamentals of Packaging Technology, Fifth Edition published by the IoPP.

IMPORTANT! If you are pursuing IoPP certification or recertification, please be advised that the CPP exam coincides with Fundamentals of Packaging Technology, Fifth Edition. New questions on the updated CPP exam are NOT covered in the Fourth Edition.

Fundamentals is intended to be a teaching tool. IoPP uses it as the standard reference for certification because of its liberal use of illustrations, simple and detailed explanations, and exercise questions at the conclusion of each chapter.

Special note: IoPP reserves the right to approve tests offered by other organizations or educational institutions which may then be used for the test portion of the qualification procedure. There is no guarantee that such tests will also use the same text as the basis for questions and answers. In any case, IoPP will use the Fundamentals text as the “reference of appeal” on any disputed answers.

To order the Fundamentals text book, visit IoPP's online bookstore. When page opens, the Fundamentals text can be found under "New Titles."

For more information on this and other texts, phone the IoPP Bookstore at 1-630-544-5050, ext. 4005.
