Your staff works hard all year and is dedicated to helping your community. Help them advance their career by becoming a certified professional. With NRPA group certification discount packages, you can provide your employees with the opportunity to earn the Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and/or the Certified Park and Recreation Executive (CPRE) certification at a discounted rate. The CPRP sets the national standard for all park and recreation professionals who want to be at the forefront of their field. Professionals also can continue demonstrating their dedication with the CPRE, setting the standard for managerial, administrative and executive park and recreation professionals.

By taking advantage of the group certification discount packages, you are showing your employees that you value them and your agency’s overall success. Aside from the monetary value your agency will receive, the package discount encourages your team to apply, study and test together for the certification. For example, the NRPA Premier Agency Certification Benefit allows Premier members to purchase group CPRP and CPRE exams and save up to $95 on applications by applying for a group discount. The more candidates your agency has, the larger the reduction in cost. Study materials, such as the CPRP Study Guide, CPRP Practice Exam, and Management of Park and Recreation Agencies text, also are included at a discounted rate.
