The next Online CPF Exam Study Group—free to PPFA members—will meet for 90 minutes every Tuesday for 12 weeks, via Zoom. You do not need to have a Zoom account.

The Summer-Fall group will run Tuesday, August 3 to Tuesday, October 19.

This will be the last one for 2021--so if you're thinking of studying for the exam, don't miss out!

It will fill fast and space is limited so don't delay!

The group will help you study and provide guidance to prepare you to earn CPF designation--a great learning and marketing tool!

Participants should have these study materials, available from the PPFA Online Store:

Free CPF Study Guide
Art & Picture Framing Glossary of Standard Terms
PPFA Guidelines for Framing Works of Art on Paper
PPFA Guidelines for Framing Textiles and Needlework
Framing Works of Art on Canvas - Paul MacFarland, MCPF, CPF
The Mounting and Laminating Handbook, Edition 3 – Chris Paschke, CPF, GCF
The Complete Guide to Shadowboxes and Framing Objects – James Miller, MCPF, GCF

I failed the CPF practice exam after I studied all the books by myself. After I finished the CPF Exam Study Group, I got a 95% on the actual exam!
