Certified Analytics Professional Program Earns Prestigious ANSI Accreditation

The Certified Analytics Professional (CAP®) program, the only global professional certification for analytics practitioners, has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the American member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), furthering its distinction to what CIO Magazine earlier this year called one of the top "big data certifications that will payoff."

CAP® is recognized as an independent validation of the analytics body of knowledge of those who earn the certification. More than 20 percent of Fortune 100 companies employ CAPs, as do more than 200 different companies in more than 20 countries across the globe, along with government agencies, the U.S. military, and other organizations.

ANSI accreditation provides a formal international endorsement that meets a global standard for the certification of personnel. Since 1918, ANSI has provided organizations across the country with industry guidelines, as well as recognizing those that consistently adhere to the highest standards. ANSI accreditation serves as an objective confirmation of the quality of not only the CAP® program, but of the skills of the analytics professionals who achieve a CAP® certification. From the testing process to job analysis to test administration, CAP® meets the demanding criteria aimed at maximizing statistical requirements and best practices.

"We are delighted that CAP® has been recognized with this prestigious accreditation from ANSI," said Melissa Moore, Executive Director of INFORMS, which manages the CAP® program. "With the growing demand for analytics professionals, the ANSI accreditation provides every CAP® recipient an unparalleled competitive advantage and a professional distinction that the public, their colleagues, and employers can trust."
