6 – Learn About CPC’s Simplified Certification Process

Career Professionals of Canada is setting the Canadian standard for excellence in our profession. CPC offers five distinct certifications. If you have related experience, you can get certified in one of two ways: Course-Based or Competency-Based. Watch our certification explainer video to learn more about the process.

Resolve to work toward the certifications that best match your areas of expertise. When you receive your certifications, you can use the associated letters after your name. You can also use the logo on your résumé, business card, and website. You’ll enhance your credibility, visibility, and opportunities.

If you’ve already achieved your C-Level certification, aim your sights on the M-Level. When you attain the Master-Level certification, you’ll be part of an elite group of top strategists in Canada. In line with CPC’s member-friendly policies, there are never any renewal or re-certification fees!
