Exam Delivery

The CAPP and CAPA exams are administered twice a year.  Applications are accepted for the two upcoming exam windows.  Candidates will receive instructions for selecting a date and time of their choice after the application/ registration process is complete. 

Computer-Based Testing

The CAPP and CAPA certification exams are developed, documented, reviewed and administered by Kryterion, one of the leaders in providing comprehensive and secure technology-based assessment services.   

Because nationally recognized standards are utilized, these exams have proven to be a reliable and verifiable means by which to measure the competency skills of AP professionals and associates. These standards also ensure all examinees will be tested fairly and solely on their AP skills and knowledge (no reference materials may be used during the exam) and that the exam is administered and proctored in a confidential and secure environment.

  • Convenience of testing windows.
  • Global testing centers.
  • Peace of mind from uncompromising security.
  • The confidence that comes with testing with the global industry leader.
