Distinctions, Qualifications and Other Certificated Courses

The NPS offers qualifications, distinctions and certificated courses to achieve your goal to be the best.
Distinctions are not just about getting letters after your name, but they are about showing the others you take photography seriously. They give the photographer a great sense of worth and achievement.
Certificated Courses are a way to enhance your credibility, self-image, and encourage life-long learning and professional development.
