Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW)

No Training; only Study Guide to help me prepare for exam

I passed a timed examination consisting of four modules, testing my industry knowledge and understanding of the resume writing field, my command for grammar, punctuation, spelling and proofreading, and skills in strategic thinking on resume related issues.

I was also required to develop a resume and cover letter based upon background information of a hypothetical client provided by the PARW/CC Certification Committee Board.

My certification examination was reviewed and graded by three CPRWs who are members of the Certification Committee Board. Organizational membership is required to maintain the CPRW credential. The CPRW credential was established in 1991 and is recognized as the standard of the industry.
