INSTITUTE — West Virginia State University has been approved as a testing center for people seeking certification by the International Association of Administrative Professionals.

Previously, those seeking IAAP certification had to travel outside West Virginia in order to take the exam. In November, the Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) Exam will be offered at WVSU.

The CAP rating is the most widely recognized and accepted business credential for administrative assistants. CAP holders must re-certify every five years and they must earn a minimum of 60 continuing education credits to do so. The exam is offered in May and November at approved testing centers.

In advance of the November exam, a review course will be offered at WVSU through the Continuing Education Program.

In order to sit for the CAP exam an applicant must have experience in the administrative support field; however, the number of years of experience is dependent upon the education level of the applicant. IAAP recommends three to six community college credit hours for each area of the exam, but they are not a requirement for the exam itself.
