Certification: Certified Pricing Professional (CPP) | PPS

WHAT IS CPP?

The Certified Pricing Professional program is your one-stop solution for addressing many of the pricing problems you may encounter in the conduct of your business. Whether it is price optimization or revenue management, by obtaining advanced knowledge and expertise in pricing, you can set yourself apart from your competition and steer your organization in the direction you want.

But how?

The Professional Pricing Society is working with leading business and academic experts in the field to prepare a one-of-a-kind curriculum that addresses all aspects of pricing you can imagine and more. Through the CPP program, you can take online courses, receive study material, and attend workshops featuring lectures by pricing experts. It doesn’t matter which industry you belong to. The training you receive under the CPP program is extensive and all-inclusive.

CPP DESIGNATION

On the successful completion of the CPP program, you receive the esteemed CPP
designation. Our CPP designation is the equivalent of graduating from a pricing
university, if there ever was one. It is recognizable industry-wide as a symbol
for pricing expertise. It is the culmination of an academic endeavor that the
pricing profession clearly lacks.

To earn the CPP designation, you need:

  • 6 CPP Credits: The successful conclusion of each course counts as a credit.
  • Post-course test: The post-course test follows the completion of individual courses.
  • CPP Accreditation Exam: The 4-hour long final exam ensures the rigors required to maintain standards of quality.

 

CPP TRAINING BENEFITS YOUR COMPANY AND YOU

Pricing is one of the most significant aspects of conducting a business since it directly determines your profit margins, sales volume, and market position. Here’s how achieving a CPP designation can help you in these three key areas:

Profit margins: One of the primary aims of a business is maximizing profits. With the CPP designation, you would be better prepared to achieve that.

Sales volume: Focusing too much on profit margins can negatively impact your sales volume. The CPP program offers valuable solutions to finding a balance between maximizing profits and increasing sales.

Market share: Both of the aforementioned factors determine your market share. Most of our CPP alumni have successfully been able to cement their company’s position in the market.
