Johanna M. Salvemini, CPF Awarded
Certified Picture Framer® Designation


North Plainfield, NJ –

Johanna Salvemini, CPF of North Plainfield, NJ has earned the Certified Picture Framer (CPF®) designation from the Professional Picture Framers Association™.

This achievement permits Salvemini to use the professional designation, CPF. This designation was granted after Salvemini met rigorous qualifications, including successful completion of a 3 ½ hour, 150 question examination administered by the PPFA. PPFA initiated the CPF program in 1986 to raise the standards of the framing profession, improve education within the industry, and recognize those framers who demonstrate acceptable knowledge and skills of established criteria.

“I am so pleased to have passed the exam”, Salvemini states. “I studied intensely for over a year going through resources and reviewing techniques and standards in industry and my studio, and I’m delighted that my efforts paid off.”

Salvemini was also fortunate to be the recipient of a CPF® scholarship from the PPFA a year ago. The scholarship funded the purchase of all the recommended resources needed to study for the exam, and cover the fee to sit for actual exam as well.

“Small business owners need to look for ways to differentiate themselves in the marketplace to get ahead. Consumers need to be aware not only of the products and services available, but also that the business owner is knowledgeable in their craft and is up-to-date in techniques, tools, and materials, as well as having high standards in conducting business. I believe the CPF designation will allow me to speak to those issues when developing long term relationships with clients.”
