Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

The Institute of Packaging Professionals, a professional society, offers two levels of certification: certified professional in training (CPIT) and certified packaging professional (CPP). The CPIT is available to college students, recent graduates, and professionals who have less than six years of experience in the field. Requirements for this certification include passing a multiple-choice test. The CPP can be earned by those with at least six years of experience in the field. In addition to the experience requirement, candidates must pass a multiple choice test and fulfill one of the following additional requirements: answer three narrative/essay questions, complete a detailed resume form, write a paper, or submit proof of a patent granted. Although certification is not required, many professional engineers obtain it to show that they have mastered specified requirements and have reached a certain level of expertise.
