(Orlando, Fla. — June 5, 2018) The International Parking Institute (IPI) celebrated the achievements of 21 new CAPP graduates at the IPI Conference & Expo in Orlando during a special ceremony June 5.

This year’s new CAPPs come from private and public parking organizations that include universities, cities, corporations, commercial operators, consultants, and technology providers.

CAPP, recognized worldwide as the leading credential in parking, is administered by IPI and an independent board, in partnership with the University of Virginia. The CAPP curriculum covers 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.

“CAPPs exemplify professionalism in our industry,” said IPI’s CEO Shawn Conrad, CAE. “This year’s graduates will help advance the parking profession through their leadership, expertise, and willingness to give back to the community.”

According to a recent survey, more than 90 percent of CAPP graduates attribute the credential to helping them achieve greater personal satisfaction, acquiring knowledge to do their job better, developing a broader peer network, and earning greater respect within their organizations. More than 75 percent attribute CAPP to increasing the likelihood of attaining a promotion.
