    CPO Training, is it worth it?

    I'm in the middle of a career change and following the CPO thread - what's not taught. Instead of going OT in that thread, I'll ask outside of it.

    Is there any value in becoming a CPO (other than marketing value)?

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks,

    - Jeff

    Sure there is, but I wouldn't do it for marketing. It's valuable if you want to focus on commercial customers. If you want to stick with residential then there's not much use in it.

    Is there something I should be looking at for residential?

    Thanks!

    APSP Tech certification is comparable, though it is strictly for education and touting yourself. It doesn't open any doors the way a CPO certification does.
