Certified pricing Professional

what is the cpp?

The Certified Pricing Professional (CPP) designation is the standard for advanced knowledge and expertise in the field of Pricing. Since 2003, over 4,000 individuals have taken courses in pricing through Professional Pricing Society.

CPP is the only world-wide pricing professional designation synthesizing the art and science of pricing giving individuals and teams the tools to price new products and services based on best practices, academically-sound data, and adapt current product/service pricing to drive revenue in a market-specific and contextually-aware way. The pricing process is mapped out in detail to ensure cross-functional buy-in to grow revenue even in this new abnormal while anticipating nuances up and down the supply chain. You’ll be able to price all products and services in a data-driven way that defines market segments, markets as a whole, and customer-perceived value yielding profit-driving results for you and your company.

After completion of the 6 credits, you then need to pass the CPP Exam.
