If you are currently certified as a CPPO/CPPB or your certification has lapsed recently (within 1 year from date of NIGP-CPP application), then you qualify for the NIGP-CPP Module B Exam under Pathway F.
The NIGP-CPP is a two-part modular exam with a module A and a Module B. The Module B Exam assesses you on the content and competencies not included in the CPPO/CPPB certification. Therefore, as a Pathway F candidate, you need to successfully complete only Module B through May 2024 testing. After May 2024 testing, all candidates – regardless of eligibility pathway – must successfully complete both Module A and Module B to earn the NIGP-CPP certification.
I will encourage all of my team members to work towards obtaining this certification and support them in any way that I can because I believe this is a meaningful certification.
