I am so pleased to announce that I have just passed Pet Sitters International’s CPPS-Certified Professional Pet Sitter® Exam recognizing me as a Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS).
The 125-question, 3-hour exam includes such topics as: dog/cat/bird pet care; health, sanitation and safety; and business operations. I am delighted to have this acknowledgement of my dedication to ongoing education and high standards of pet care professionalism.
The CPPS designation is only available to PSI members who have:
(1) successfully passed the PSI Certification Program final exam with a score of 76 percent or above,
(2) agreed to adhere to PSI’s Recommended Quality Standards, as noted in the PSI member and renewal applications,
(3) agreed to adhere to the Member Code of Conduct and Ethics, as noted in the PSI member and renewal applications, and
(4) committed to obtaining a minimum of thirty (30) continuing education hours (CEUs) every three years to apply for the certification renewal.
