IAAP News & Information

Become an Association Influencer

We’re looking for a few good men and women to be the 2014-2015 IAAP Association Influencers. Starting this year at EFAM and going forward, we are introducing a new role for IAAP members. This group of around 300 to 400 people will be IAAP’s new Association Influencers. They will be IAAP “first responders” to help the board keep their finger on the pulse of the association and to help headquarters staff with data and information.

CAP Exam - Computer-Based Testing

One of the initiatives of our Strategic Plan 2013-2018 is to move our CAP certification exam and OM specialty exam from paper and pencil testing to computer-based testing.

We are excited to announce that we currently plan to move to computer-based testing in 2015. We can’t share a lot of specifics yet; however, we can say that computer-based testing will be done through a company with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system, with testing locations throughout North America.

In order to make this a smooth transition, we will not be providing testing for CAP certification or the OM specialty in November 2014. As such, the only test date in 2014 will be the upcoming May exams...
