CAPP Certification

CAPP is respected worldwide as the leading credential in parking. CAPPs represent the best of the industry, providing service, demonstrating competence as they advance the parking profession, and leading with innovation, professionalism, and expertise. CAPP designation is meant to assure stakeholders (employers, regulators, consumers, and the public) that the credentialed parking professional has demonstrated an established level of knowledge in the field. CAPP stands for Certified Administrator of Public Parking but since it embodies all industry sectors it is simply known as CAPP.


The CAPP credential is a program of IPMI and is administered through the independent CAPP Certification Board of IPMI in cooperation with the University of Virginia.


IPMI has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In obtaining this accreditation, IPMI has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of good practice. As a result of the Authorized Provider status, IPMI is authorized to offer IACET continuing education units (CEUs) for programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.
