CPRP Exam Prep Series A

CPRP Exam Prep Series A
CPRP is a national certification program through the National Recreation and Park Association, and it is designed for park and recreation professionals that wish to put their career on the path to success. Achieving and maintaining this nationally-recognized certification illustrates a commitment to professional growth as well as an intricate understanding of key concepts within the field of parks and recreation. This program consists of four classes that will train and prepare participants to become a CPRP. Each of the four classes covers a different area of the exam, so attendance to all classes is highly recommended but not mandatory.

To attend the CPRP training sessions and sit for the exam, you must meet the following NRPA eligibility requirements:

  • Have received, or are set to receive, a Bachelor's degree from a program accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Parks, Recreation, Tourism, and Related Professions (COAPRT), or
  • Have a Bachelor's degree or higher from any institution in recreation, park resources, or leisure services, and no less than 1 year of full-time experience in the field, or
  • Have a Bachelor's degree or higher in a major other than recreation, park resources, or leisure services, and no less than 3 years of full-time experience in the field, or
  • Have an Associate's degree, and no less than 4 years of full-time experience in the field, or
  • High school degree or equivalent, and 5 years of full-time experience in the field (1 year of part-time work experience in the field (20 hours+ per week) = 6 months of full-time work experience)
