If you are interested in teaching dollmaking or earning higher dollmaking titles you can attain the title Certified Porcelain Doll Specialist by taking and passing the DAGDAPE. On the first day your instructor will review all the dollmaking techniques and procedures you learned in the Level I seminars. You will complete a review booklet covering all topics on the exam and will use this booklet, along any other relevant material, to study for the exam to be taken on the second day. The exam is normally completed by noon. You will receive your grade and certificate by mail within 6 to 8 weeks after completing the exam.

When you have completed your Level I seminars you will have the skills necessary to advance to specialty seminars and earn points toward higher titles.
