Let there be no doubt in anyone's mind about the advantage that taking this course will give you. I attended this course in Jan, and after over 30 years in this business, I came away with more that I could have imagined. The CPP exam is through and challenging as it should be. Al covers every aspect along with Dave Derex. This is a course I would recommend to any photographer... even if you're not currently pursuing your CPP. -- Sorry if this seems like a "Campaign for Al", but it was definately worth every cent I spent along with another one of our employees who also attended. -- David K.
