*IAAP STRATEGIC PLAN 2013-2018 - GOAL #3 – PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & CERTIFICATION*
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.
Also, with the change to computer-based testing, we will be changing our application deadline dates and the actual exam dates. Our plan right now is to offer the exams in March and September, replacing our current schedule of May and November.
This is an exciting change for our certification program, and we know there will be many questions. Once all of the details are finalized, we will provide updated information. Our goal is to have this information available by EFAM 2014.
