From the President

I’ve made it through half the term of my presidency and wanted to share our status with you.

We’ve been successful at making our meetings more accessible to more of our members, but continue to try and improve to accommodate more of you. 

We have increased our membership by 15 people since August and are nearing the 100 mark goal that I set for us. I’m so very proud of our members for sharing what a great organization we are and getting more of their colleagues involved with us.

We have had a variety of topics this year at our meetings, and will continue with more at our Annual Professional’s Day Conference for April 24.  Join us as you gain knowledge that will help you become a better support to your boss, co-workers and company. 

As always, I encourage you to step out of your box and participate in one of our projects or social events.  Come and serve with me as I close out my term. 

I look forward to seeing you soon!

AP Exam — Computer-Based Testing


 
One of the initiatives of our Strategic Plan 2013-2018 is to move our CAP certification exam and OM specialty exam from paper and pencil testing to computer-based testing.

We are excited to announce that we currently plan to move to computer-based testing in 2015. We can’t share a lot of specifics yet; however, we can say that computer-based testing will be done through a company with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system, with testing locations throughout North America.

In order to make this a smooth transition, we will not be providing testing for CAP certification or the OM specialty in November 2014. As such, the only test date in 2014 will be the upcoming May exams.

Also, with the change to computer-based testing, we will be changing our application deadline dates and the actual exam dates. Our plan right now is to offer the exams in March and September, replacing our current schedule of May and November.

This is an exciting change for our certification program, and we know there will be many questions. Once all of the details are finalized, we will provide updated information. Our goal is to have this information available by EFAM 2014.
