INFORMS new analytics certification, CAP® (Certified Analytics Professional), has now been offered for one year. Over 200 individuals have now taken the CAP exam and set themselves apart from the competition as qualified, serious analytics professionals who can handle the end-to-end analytics process. For employers, CAP provides another tool to help find good, qualified analytics talent, and to place the analytics talent they do have on a prescribed path of continuous professional development. For the overall profession, CAP brings visibility, credibility, and prestige in much the same way that the PMP® has done for the project management profession.
The CAP exam can now be taken at over 700 Kryterion testing centers worldwide on almost any day of the week. You can locate the testing center nearest you here: http://www.kryteriononline.com/host_locations. It is easy to prepare for the exam with INFORMS free, downloadable Study Guide developed by CAP® professionals.
