Eligibility and Applying for the CAPP Program


Welcome and congratulations on considering becoming a CAPP, respected worldwide as the leading credential in parking.

What does it mean to be a CAPP? You need only connect with any parking professional who currently holds the title to know that the CAPP community comprises the very best in the profession- mentors, innovators, leaders - who combine talent, skills, expertise, and a commitment to share their ideas and expertise to advance the parking profession.

The CAPP credential is a program of the International Parking Institute (IPI) and is administered through the independent CAPP Certification Board of IPI in cooperation with the University of Virginia.

The new CAPP Candidate Handbook, available for download here, is a comprehensive guide to both the CAPP Program and its new eligibility and application requirements.
