New Certificate Request Form

The World Parks Academy website is going through construction and as a result, there is an opportunity for current CPPs and CIPPs to request an updated certificate. The Academy is offering an updated certificate as a result of the name change and logo updates. Please note, it is not required for those certified to have the new certificate as the previous version is still valid. If you would like to request a new certificate, please click here.

There is a fee associated with obtaining a new certificate. The fee is a flat rate and covers shipping, handling, materials, printing, and processing charges.
