Organizational Management (OM)



Specialty Certificates are specifically developed for CAP designees to further enhance and differentiate skills sets within focused areas such as organizational management, technology, and project management.

You must be an active CAP holder to obtain a Specialty Certificate. Given the fact all participants are CAP designees, we expect a higher level of skills and knowledge from participants in administrative duties and functions. This allows facilitators of the programs to dive deeper into the content areas since a baseline of competency is expected.

Specialty Certificates do not require recertification. As long as an individuals CAP credential is active their Specialty Certificate will remain active. If an individuals CAP credential is revoked due to failure to recertify, any Specialty Certificates they have earned will be revoked as well.



The Organizational Management (OM) Specialty differs from other Specialty Certificates in the fact that it is an eight-week certificate program. The goal of this program is for participants to apply the information learned throughout the eight-week program to their specific professional situation and to learn through real-world application.

OM participants should plan on spending three to five hours per week over the eight-week program.  OM is worth 25 CAP recertification points
