Merit & Degree Program
Offered to PPC members since 1948, the PPC degree continues as a prestigious sign of advanced education in the industry—a symbol of knowledge and quality to consumers and peers alike.
A PPC degree is a symbol of your accomplishments that:
- Pushes you to continue learning and growing.
- Helps you market yourself.
- Helps you justify and explain your prices.
- Symbolizes your commitment and expertise.
To earn a PPC degree, you must be a PPC member and accumulate 25 merits (or points). PPC members can earn merits through activities like competition, education and teaching.
