The CPS/CAP examination is developed and administered by the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP). The Institute offers two separate certification programs: the CPS rating and the CAP rating. To attain the CPS rating, a candidate must meet certain educational and work experience requirements and pass a three-part, one-day examination. To attain the CAP rating, a candidate must meet certain educational and work experience requirements and pass a four-part, one and one-half day examination. NEW CAP candidates do not receive the CPS rating upon passing parts 1-3 of the CAP exam. Current CPS holders are required to take only Part 4 of the CAP exam. New CAP candidates must pass all four parts of the exam before being awarded any credit.
