        The Certified Professional Florist program is dedicated to bringing a standardized, professional level of knowledge and expertise to those in the retail florist industry. As a Certified Professional Florist, you will bring a new standard of quality to your work by demonstrating your professional expertise and passing a certification process.  

Whether you embark on certification yourself, or are sponsored by an employer, you must apply to the CPF program. You will receive a manual and you may study as long as necessary to prepare for the examination. To become a Certified Professional Florist, you'll need to pass both a hands-on and written examination.
