CAP Associate Recognition Program
Recognition of your achievements is critical when you seek employment. The ISA CAP Associate program will give you third-party, objective assessment and confirmation of your potential to become an automation professional.
The ISA CAP Associate program is a recognition program for individuals that have graduated from (or will graduate from within six months of taking the exam) a four year technical degree program who are interested in working in the field of automation. The CAP Associate program provides recognition of the individual’s interest and knowledge of automation. Although the CAP Associate program is not a certification program, it provides an additional credential for your resume. Individuals who pass the CAP Associate exam will receive one year of “work experience” credit toward the Certified Automation Professional® (CAP®) eligibility requirements. CAP® applicants who have a four year technical degree must document five years of experience in automation. The CAP Associate would be eligible to sit for the CAP exam after four years of work experience in automation.
Examination Application Fee: $85 ISA Member / $95 List
Note: This recognition program is not a certification. Those who take the CAP Associate examination may be interested in pursuing the ISA Certified Automation Professional (CAP) certification program once the experience level reaches five years. Successfully completing the CAP Associate exam equals one year of experience good toward the CAP requirements. For more information on the CAP program, click here.
