Being certified by the Presentation Guild’s certification program demonstrates that you have the proficiency and competency expected in a presentation professional. Our certifications require a specified amount of industry experience. We grant certifications after an assessment of your knowledge and skills. This program enables our entire community to advocate for employers to view presentation professionals as having unique and valued skills.

Later this year, we are expanding our certifications with the Certified Presentation Expert (CPE)™ – PowerPoint exam.

Our industry-leading assessment for Certified Presentation Specialist (CPS)™– PowerPoint is currently open. Get started by downloading our Presentation Industry Professional Standards and progress tracker. Plus, Guild members receive the certifications study guide and practice tests for free and save $150 on the exam—a significant savings for members. (In fact, this discount pays for your Guild dues.)

Become a Certified Presentation Specialist – PowerPoint now so you can level up later this year. The Guild education team is reviewing intermediate presentation standards, which we will release before the next Certified Presentation Expert (CPE)™ – PowerPoint certification exam this fall.

Plus, we’re scheduling new bootcamps to help you prepare for certification. Stay tuned for our upcoming Specialist-level bootcamp dates. We’ll also offer an Expert-level when we launch the next CPE exam.

Learn more about how you can be certified here. If you’re not yet a Guild member and want to get certified, consider the cost savings and the many other benefits of membership.

We’re very excited to learn from you!  If you work in any aspect of the presentation industry, have a pro tip or trick, lesson learned, or favorite resource to share, and would like to contribute to the Presentation Guild blog, please consider submitting an article for consideration on our blog post submission page.
