Once the candidate has passed the exam, a letter is sent informing them of the fact that they have passed, that they can immediately begin using CAPP after their name and the date of when their certification expires.
Graduation proceedings are held at the IPI Conference & Expo each year during the gala industry event. Graduates receive their official framed certificate and CAPP pin at that time.
In order to obtain recertification, the CAPP is expected to participate in certain activities
to maintain the certification. The CAPP must achieve a minimum of four (4) points per year, with a minimum of 12 points at the end of the three (3) years in order to request recertification. Points over and above the required 12 points may not be carried over to the next three (3) year recertification cycle. In addition to the 12 points, a CAPP must either author one (1) published article or deliver one (1) presentation at a parking and transportation industry conference or regional meeting within the three (3) year period.
An applicant can achieve a maximum of 12 points in this category. An associate degree earns two (2) points, a Bachelor's degree earns five (5) points, a Master's degree earns ten (10) points and a doctorate or professional degree earns twelve (12) points. Professional certifications are worth two (2) points.
IPI Conference & Expo
IPI's Conference & Expo (non-CAPP) shall be credited four (4) points each.

Other Seminars and Conferences
All non-IPI conferences and seminars sponsored by educational institutions, professional or trade associations, recognized business organizations, governmental agencies, etc. that are deemed by the Committee on Professional Certification to be pertinent and directly applicable to parking shall be worth one (1) point each.

However, if those courses have been previously attended they shall have a value of one (1) point for two-day courses and three (3) points for five-day courses.
Presentations and Publications
Presentations and publications shall be worth two (2) points each. Each CAPP must deliver at least one (1) presentation or author one (1) published article within the three (3) year period.
A recertification fee of $75 for IPI members and $125 for non-members shall be paid when the request for recertification has been made.
"The CAPP Program opened my eyes to the real
breadth of variables that impact day-to-day parking
operations. It's easy to get caught up in daily
responsibilities but, the CAPP Program illuminates the bigger
picture and provides the opportunity for exchange of information
amongst industry professionals, each with unique experiences and
views. Along with proudly sporting the CAPP designation, I
feel closer to the industry and the issues facing today's parking
professional. Most of all, the CAPP experience provided me
with a good base of support and plenty of contacts with lots of
opportunities to share information."
