Earn Your Merits—Schedule an Exam!
Can you believe we're halfway through 2017?! Just a reminder: as a CPP Liaison, one of the requirements is to schedule at least one CPP Exam per year. If you have not scheduled one for the year, it's not too late, just fill out the CPP Exam Listing Form to schedule an exam.
*CPP Liaison Merits are awarded at the end of each month. Liaisons can earn only 2 service merits per year, regardless of the number of exams scheduled or proctored. You can check your merit report at PPA.com/MyPPA.
