    Default Want to get Certified

    Hello All,
    I live in Florida, where would I go to take the test and are there any sample tests out there to give me an idea on what they are looking for me to know. I've got an old copy of Photography, that I used when I was in School in 1981-83 at the Art Institute of Atlanta. If someone could help me with this I would really be grateful.
    Thanks
    Ryan M. Glick

    Hi Ryan...

    As far as exam dates/location...I did a quick check on the site and didn't see any listed. That doesn't mean there aren't though -- check with your state liason, and also your state affiliate groups... some offer the exam at most conventions, or at least yearly.

    there is a study group starting up I believe (http://ourppa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5081)

    Anyways, the CPP site, www.certifiedphotographer.com has some information about what will be on the exam (topic you should know), and has a few sample questions. There's also a list of supplementary texts. I wrote mini "reviews" of the books as I read them -- mainly to remind myself what they cover later because I'm forgetful. Anyways, those are here: http://photobooks.wordpress.com/cpp-certification/. Another good resource is the companion website for Photography 8e -- I've linked to it on the blog post I just gave you (there are some "issues" with a few questions, but I've listed those on there as well).

    Good luck

    Hi Ryan;

    When are you thinking about taking the exam ? I just gave it at our state meeting on February 11th and will give it again on April 22nd and will give it in June and October too. You are welcome to come to Pennsylvania to take it. One Forum member traveled here from California to take it and was glad she did.

    Hi Betsy;

    I just noticed that you are over 1,500 posts. Did you get your toaster from Derek yet ? I am now over 1,750 and got some English Muffins to make in the toaster I got.

    Hey All,
    thanks for the info, took the sample test on the site that Betsy gave me, I know I need to brush up on lighting ratios and my color wheel, since not doing alot of darkroom work lately I've forgotten a few of the basics. But will study up and do some reading.
    Now off to my digital darkroom.
    Thanks
    Ryan

    Ryan,

    I live in Jacksonville. Usually they give the exam at Florida School. I took it there last year. I'd contact the Florida School organizers and ask them if they are planning to do it this year (June 3-7 in Daytona).

    Default Exams in Florida

    Ryan,

    The exam may be given at the Florida School and it will definitely be given at the Florida State convention in Orlando. The state convention is in August. We will post the exam dates and locations at www.certifiedphotogrpaher.com as soon as they become available so in check in there periodically. You will also find sample questions for the test, a study guide, and the certification application on this site.

    David mistyped the web site. It should read www.certifiedphotographer.com
