|IAAP Specialties Overview|
Organizational Management (OM)
OM Exam will be offered for the last time in September 2016
The Organizational Management (OM) Specialty for CAP designees is being updated in January 2017 from an examination-based assessment certificate to a more modern and relevant assessment-based certificate program. The program will become an eight-week guided learning experience through Learn@IAAP, our online learning platform. Participants will not need to be online at the same time allowing the busy administrative professional to complete the program around their individual work schedule and family commitments.
The content of the 2017 OM Specialty will focus on:
· Organizational Planning
· Advanced Communication
· Administration (including supervisory skills)
· Team Building
The content will be delivered through a combination of readings, videos, and/or podcasts. Participants will interact with each other and a facilitator, which will provide an engaging and social learning experience. There will be assessments every two weeks on specific material (quizzes and writing assignments), and the final assessment will be a culmination of the content learned during the course. To earn the OM certificate of completion, candidates will need to meet specific participation requirements and defined outcomes on all assessments.
The goal is for participants to apply the information learned to their specific professional situation with real-world application. The cost for the 2017 OM Certificate Program will be $299 for IAAP members and $429 for nonmembers. This fee will be all inclusive; there are no additional charges for reading materials or assessments.
