There will also be a CPP - Testing session, Sunday April 26th at 1:30 in North Conway, NH.

Then NHPPA Conference is rapidly approaching and anyone wanting to take the CPP exam should notify PPA very soon.

Heather Smith will be conducting a 2 hour class on Certification right before the exam.

If you have any questions, contact me - don@chickphotography.net

I hope to see you there!

Hi Don,

I am signed up and paid, so am "good to go" (note that I didn't say "ready to go")!

Thanks,

Patty

At least you know what things to study. ;) And you can go to Heather's program for a last minute refresher. :)

I can't imagine going to a test and not bringing a pencil?.... Maybe this year I'll bring a bunch but charge $10 each for folks who need them!:D

Imagine flying half way across the country to take a test and forgetting to bring a #2 pencil.

I totally would'a paid that.

That's right, kids. It's a crash course. We're going to talk about anything that's still confusing to you, anything you have questions on, and a quick rundown of the key topics that will be on the exam... I'm bringing my 'Photography' book (London) just in case, and we'll make sure you're primed and ready for that test.

Hi Don;

Since you won't be giving it again till next year ... I just gave the exam on the 19th and will be giving it again on June 14th and October 4th in Camp Hill Pennsylvania. If anyone does not want to wait till 2010 they are welcome to come here to Pa. to take it.

D. Craig, Thanks for the offer.

Folks can take it in September in NH at the PPANE Convention in Nashua.

I have heard so far from 2 of the 11 that they passed!!!

I find it very discouraging that I took my test a full week before your test and I have still not received results. Are they saving them up for awhile and correcting them all at once?

Do you know when your Certification Liaison sent them back to PPA?

I put them in the Fedex pouch as soon as I was back from the NHPPA Conference. Most of the time it takes about 2 weeks for people to hear back...

I took my test on April 19th. My liason Fedexed them as soon as his conference was over. On May 1st I was told that my test would be graded the following week. On May 8th I was told that my results had been mailed. I'm sure they're arriving this week, but I think the process has taken too long. I took my test 22 days ago.

Hi Don;

I Fed-Ex'd them back to PPA on Wed. April 22nd the day after our 3 day convention was over.

D Craig - my concern has absolutely nothing to do with your timing on getting the tests sent in - you did it very quick and I appreciate that!

Just frustrated that others are receiving their results ahead of me, when their test was after mine.

On May 8th I was told that my results had been mailed.

Well that explains it!! The post office has been struggling to implement the 3 cent rate increase that went into effect today.....

Someone once shipped me something from the next state over, it took literally 3 weeks to arrive. The distance was about 160 miles. I think the postman walked it to me. Another time I sent a package to Florida on a Saturday. The person had it in their Monday's mail. I am in NH... How can this be?

At least you know the status from PPA. Now it's up to the USPS to do their job.

Don,

Since you have done this:
"~Programs 2010~
Imaging USA - Nashville"

When do you think the planners soon will post a schedule, even something preliminary? Another speaker's website noted they have a pre-con time, but I'd like to know details so we can start a possible plan for travel and possible accommodations.

I looked on the www.imagingusa.org website and didn't see anything... I have no idea on when they will post a schedule. They asked me to do a pre-convention program for them.

I've heard from 4 of the 11 test takers that they are happy! :D
