"I entered the CAPP program entirely for self-fulfillment purposes: I wanted to be the first in my company to earn a certification that no one else claimed. What I obtained from the program were not just initials to place after my name. I obtained a wealth of knowledge and valuable relationships with professionals ... who have helped me better understand the industry and are a great resource. The CAPP program truly offers a unique opportunity to learn from industry experts, to build lasting relationships and help build careers. I strongly urge anyone interested in developing professional relationships and advancing their career and knowledge to participate in the program." - Charles Reedstrom, CAPP, Senior Practice Builder, Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc.
