Certification program adds new testing vendor, enhancements for 2018

As of January 2018, PSI, a globally recognized leader in certification testing, will be serving Certified Analytics Professional (CAP®) candidates. INFORMS is working closely with the provider to finalize new procedure for registering those interested in taking the CAP exam.

If you are trying to schedule a 2018 testing date on the Kryterion site, you’ll notice that there are no dates available. Kryterion will be hosting testing through the end of 2017.

INFORMS will be writing to you and any other candidates who may be testing in in 2018. The switch to the new testing service brings enhanced services. Candidates will receive an official score report with a diagnostic profile immediately after testing. If the candidate passes, he or she will quickly receive a digital certificate from Accredible. The CAP pin will be mailed separately as before.

Speaking of Accredible, have you linked your unique Accredible URL to your LinkedIn site? Have you placed it in your e-mail signature? Have you shared it with family and friends? CAP certificants are a small, select group – about 500 worldwide. It’s a very exclusive club, so leverage it to your advantage.

Keep in mind that the CAP designation has the coveted endorsement for its rigor and internal competence by ANSI, the American representative to the Organization of International Standards under ISO/IEC17024.

I’ve been reaching out to applicants and other interested parties to answer any questions about the certification process. These e-mails have been well-received, with many applicants renewing their interest in the CAP program and completing their applications. If you haven’t finished your application or have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jpmiller@informs.org. More information on CAP is also available at www.certifiedanalytics.org.

It has been a very productive year for the CAP program. Expect more enhancements in 2018.

 – Jan paul Miller, certification manager, INFORMS
