    Very Nice. How long did you study to get certified. How long was the written exam.

    congratulations Tommie, way to go! I am right behind you, have passed the exam and will be submitting my images soon.

    Kim; the exam was 100 multiple choice questions. You are allowed two hours to complete it. There are study groups formed, I'm not sure if one is going on now, but you can find information about that and other certification ins and outs by reading the threads in the certified section of this web site.

    There is also a certified section on the main ppa web site at that will give you more info.

    Throughout the summer, my local affiliate, Profesional Photographers of Northern California, embarked on a mission to get as many members certified. They passed around a sign-up sheet to our 80 members and got 16 to sign up. Each week they met and discussed each chapter of the Upton book, with each person taking charge of each chapter (good exercise in leadership!)

    I proctored the exam (as the NCal liason) to 14 of those who signed up. I am pleased to report that 13 out of the 14 passed the exam in September. 9 of those managed to submit their images.

    I am pleased to report that 8 members have passed and are officially CPPs!

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?

    I did not have a study group but I studied another local photographer the night before the exam. I have been studying by myself for about 2 months before i took the exam.
