Representing the CEP Designation

The CEPI encourages people to highlight their participation in the CEP Program in their resumes, LinkedIn profiles, on name badges at conferences, in bios when speaking at industry events, in membership directories, etc.  The CEPI has worked hard for many years to build the credibility of the CEP mark and we appreciate it being used appropriately.  The CEPI has some guidelines on how to include your participation in the program.

For CEPs:
Please highlight your important achievement by using the CEP mark (CEP preceded by a comma) following your first and last name.  You may also list your certification in your resume or bio.  On your LinkedIn profile, please list your designation under the Education section with a link to the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University.  You may also list your designation under Certificates and specify the date you received your certification.

For candidates who have completed Level One or Level Two:
Until a candidate has passed all three levels of the program, the candidate may describe their accomplishment in their professional biography, resume or LinkedIn profile (under Education section) as "Jane Doe has completed Level 1 [or Level 2] of the CEP program through the Certified Equity Professional Institute at Santa Clara University."  You may use the link to the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University.

Be sure to also check out our monthly continuing education calendar that is emailed each mid-month and is also available on the CEPI website. There are many great opportunities to learn more about our constantly changing industry, and earn continuing education hours.
