PPAI has introduced a new look and feel for its certification transcripts to provide greater efficiency and a more user-friendly experience. The transcripts are used to track progress for an individual working to earn the Certified Advertising Specialty (CAS) and Master Advertising Specialty (MAS) designations, and the Trained Advertising Specialist (TAS) certificate.

Changes to the program include the addition of a TAS transcript, and new TAS- and CAS-required courses and elective requirements.

Also, in the online transcript, previous credits accumulated for a previously earned designation have been relocated to keep the individual focused on the current certification in progress. All previous credits and certifications can be found in the “Total Transcript” in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

The transcript will also now prominently list the date when a CAS or MAS was earned and when it needs to be renewed, and will also feature a progress bar to show how many credits are needed to earn or renew a certification.
