Overview

One of the main goals of the Association of Administrative Professionals/Assocation des Professionnels de l’administration (the AAP) is to encourage people in the business world to continuously upgrade their professionalism through continuing education. The AAP is confident that the advantages of advanced learning will be of mutual benefit to an organization and the administrative professional.

The Canadian Certified Administrative Professional Programs, sponsored by the AAP, is one of the vehicles available to those interested in advancing their professional development. Both of our certificate programs – the Canadian Certified Administrative Professional (CCAP) and the Canadian Certified Administrative Professional Associate (CCAPA) are for administrative professionals. Members are encouraged to earn either certification by meeting the requirements of the applicable program’s components. Both certifications have educational, membership, and experience components, and both require certification renewal once they are obtained.
