IAAP Announcements

Move to Computer-based CAP/OM Testing

IAAP CAP Certification Exam and OM Specialty Exam – Move to Computer-based Testing

One of the initiatives of our Strategic Plan 2013-2018 is to move our IAAP CAP certification exam and OM specialty exam from paper and pencil testing to computer-based testing. We are excited to announce the final plans to meet that initiative!

Starting in March 2015, the IAAP CAP certification and OM specialty exams will become available through computer-based testing. Candidates will apply for the exam through IAAP and then schedule a testing time through Pearson Vue. Pearson Vue is a company with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system with testing locations throughout North America and select international locations.

Why IAAP? I wanted to learn more about the certification, but that was just a starting point. IAAP is so much more than just CPS, CAP or OM. I recently attended TEC14 in Atlanta. It was my first training conference and I hope not my last! The classes were outstanding, relevant and had great networking possibilities.
