Strategic Plan 2013-2018:
Goal 3 - Professional Development & Certification
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 with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system with testing locations throughout North America and select international locations.
The move to computer-based testing will allow for additional testing dates. Dates and times will depend on each testing center's availability.
Spring exams will be offered March 2-7, 2015. The deadline to apply is December 1, 2014. JUST RELEASED OCT 10: MORE INFO
Fall exams will be offered August 31-September 5, 2015. The deadline to apply is June 1, 2015.
There will be no exam in November 2014.
The process...Jennifer Mikic advises Candidates must first apply for the exam through IAAP to be approved for testing. The deadline to apply is December 1; or December 8 with a late fee. All approved candidates will receive an MRA ID# from IAAP around mid-December. This ID# will be needed to create a Web account with Pearson.
Around late December, IAAP will share the names of all approved candidates and their MRA ID# with Pearson. Pearson will add the approved candidate names into their system, and then candidates can begin scheduling testing appointments starting January 5.
Candidates can view the locations of Pearson Vue sites by selecting Locate a Test Center located in the right column. However, candidates should NOT contact the testing center directly at this time. The staff who work at the Pearson testing centers do not have access to IAAP exam details until that information has been shared with them - which will be in late December.
