IPI’s CAPP Credential Program Marks Largest Class of Graduates

CAPP is respected worldwide as leading credential for parking professionals

(LAS VEGAS – July 2, 2015) The International Parking Institute (IPI) announced the 2015 graduates of the CAPP parking credential program at the IPI Conference & Expo in Las Vegas this week.

The 55 CAPP graduates–the largest class in the program’s history–come from private and public, U.S. and international parking organizations at universities, cities, airports, corporations, technology providers, consultants, and transportation authorities.
Speaking for the CAPP Class of 2015, Jaime Windfont, CAPP, regional vice president of operations, Winpark Management, Houston, said, “It is fitting that the Class of 2015 is the largest in the history of the program because we are a diverse and dynamic group representing the varied nature of the growing parking industry. The CAPP program offers much to its students, from outstanding training in all things parking to a wealth of networking experiences with ‘CAPPmates.’ We not only gained a significant amount of knowledge but we created new and enduring friendships along the way. We are proud to be the CAPP graduating class of 2015!”

CAPP is the parking profession’s most well-respected credential. Candidates earn the credential after completing a rigorous program developed by IPI in partnership with the University of Virginia. Candidates may participate in seminars and workshops on such topics as parking design, rehabilitation and maintenance; finance, revenue control and auditing; on- and off-street parking enforcement and adjudication; leadership and management; and media relations.

Recent changes to the program have expanded the number of pathways for candidates to earn the credential and the exam is now administered at convenient testing centers located throughout the U.S. and globally. More information may be obtained in the CAPP Candidate Handbook, which may be downloaded free here.
