Benefits for Organizations
For organizations seeking to gain competitive advantages or operational efficiencies through analytics and data science, the Certified Analytics Professional (CAP) certification serves as a trusted means to identify, recruit, and retain top analytics talent.
Unlike other certificates or certifications, CAP provides an independent, vendor- and technology-neutral verification of an analytics professional’s technical expertise in the seven domains of analytics along with the highly desired soft skills sought by employers across all organizations and industry sectors.
How CAP Helps Organizations
Identifying talented analytics and data science professionals in a crowded job market can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. The Certified Analytics Professional (CAP) designation validates an individual’s ability to transform data into insights and serves as a useful tool to vet prospective employees for both technical and soft skills.
It’s also important to remember that CAP isn’t only a signal of competence but a driver of quality business outcomes. Encouraging your organization’s analytics team members to pursue CAP certification lays a foundation for their long-term success built on mutual understanding of our rigorously designed curriculum. To earn certification, all CAP (and aCAP) candidates must first learn to understand and apply the INFORMS Job Task Analysis (JTA), which was developed by a group of highly regarded subject matter experts to ensure that data projects proceed according to best practices.
