    The Certified Analytics Professional (CAP®) was developed in the year 2013 and is the premier global professional certification for analytics practitioners. It was launched by the Institute for Operation Research and Management Sciences (INFORMS), the first to develop a professional certification programme in the field of analytics. Those who meet the CAP® high standards and pass the rigorous exam distinguish themselves, providing greater opportunities to enrich their careers. For organisations seeking to enhance their ability to transform complex data into valuable insights and actions, CAP® provides a trusted means to train and certify their talent in analytics, and identify those with the most potential to be practitioners.

    Earning the CAP®  credential requires meeting eligibility requirements for experience and education, effective mastering of soft skills, committing to the CAP®  Code of Ethics and passing the CAP ® exam. Once the application to become a CAP® has been submitted and reviewed, the participant will be able to take the exam administered online at the appointed test centre.

    CAP® examines the knowledge of a person across seven domains with preparation for both aCAP® and CAP® the same. The domains are:
    1. Business Problem Framing
    2. Analytical Problem Framing
    3. Data
    4. Methodology Approach
    5. Model Building
    6. Deployment
    7. Life Cycle Management
    The high-level programme content (project-based approach) covering the required body of knowledge is:
    • Business & Analytics Problem Framing
    • Statistical Data Analysis
    • Analytics Methodology
    • Preparation for CAP® exam

    The Associate Certified Analytics Professional (aCAP®) designation connotes an entry-level analytics professional that may not have experience in practice yet and is at the beginning of a career pathway that leads to the elite CAP® designation. Fresh graduates are encouraged to apply for this. Meanwhile, CAP® is for those with minimum five years working experience in programming. The validation period for the CAP® designation is for three years and must be renewed after that.
    The Multimedia University (MMU) is the INFORMS® recognised analytics education provider for the CAP® Programme.
