Congratulations to our recent CCAP/CCAP Associate graduates!
Earning my CCAP designation was one of the most rewarding things I have done in my professional life so far. I am someone who has a very busy lifestyle and I was able to complete all of my courses part time on a schedule that worked for me. With the support of AAP and my employer, I was able to choose courses that were both meaningful to the profession of administrative professionals and specifically to my career and the industry I work in. This is a designation that is very rewarding and very attainable for anybody!
Recent graduates from the Edmonton Branch include:
