What is the edge?

Professional growth, better clients, faster results and overall marketplace leadership = increased efficiency and revenue for you and your company.

Who has the edge?
Individuals who associate with other winning professionals, invest in themselves, pride themselves on being at the top of their game and those that have real experience in NPD.

Next steps to gaining the edge
NPDP Certification is a two-part process: an application and an exam. You must have an approved application before you take the exam. To learn more about these two parts, visit the Application & Process and NPD Exam sections of the site.
