History of CPI Professional Development Program (PDP)

CPI’s Professional Development Program (PDP), which has been going strong for over 15 years, consists of educational and training courses that provide unmatched opportunities for participants to increase their knowledge of the polyurethane industry. The PDP provides unparalleled learning opportunities for both industry newcomers and veterans. CPI strives to provide opportunities that keep industry professionals on top of the latest standards, trends, and developments.

CPI’s PDP attendees include the nation’s leading suppliers, producers, and distributors of chemicals and equipment used to make polyurethane and manufactures of polyurethane products. Our PDP program is the building block for members and non-members of CPI to understand developments in Polyurethane products from new science-based research, new innovative technology, polyurethane elastomers, coatings, sealants, and much more.
