CAPP Certification

CAPP is respected worldwide as the leading credential in parking and mobility. 

CAPPs represent the best of the industry advancing the profession and leading with innovation, professionalism, and expertise.  The CAPP designation assures stakeholders (employers, regulators, consumers, and the public) that the credentialed professional has demonstrated an established level of industry-specific knowledge. CAPP stands for Certified Administrator of Public Parking, but since it embodies all industry sectors it is simply known as CAPP.
