Certified Analytics Professional (CAP®) Program & Examination program that meets the needs of analytics professionals by:

  • validating analytics knowledge and
  • differentiating analytics professionals from their peers; and
  • enhancing professionals' analytics knowledge and ability.

This BOOST program advances the field of analytics by setting standards by which organizations can identify and develop qualified analytics professionals. Achieving the certification contributes to the career success and continued competence of analytics professionals. The CAP® also reinforces the credibility and visibility of the analytics profession. BOOST defines analytics ” as the scientific process of transforming data into insight for making better decisions. Analytics begins with identifying the business problem and proceeds with evaluating it using statistical tools and methodologies to arrive at a solution, a process analytics professionals are skilled at. INFORMS is the first professional society to develop a formal certification program for analytics professionals.

Key components of the CAP® program include:

  • 1 . Formal credentialing requirements, including a standardized exam and required renewal
  • 2 . Program content based on the findings of a job task analysis working group, whose members represent a broad background of analytics practitioners (see the section, The Job Task Analysis
  • 3 . Agreed upon eligibility criteria consisting of academic preparation, work experience in analytics, and an attestation from an employer confirming adequate mastery of analytics soft skills;
  • 4 . Certification program content that is both software and vendor-neutral; and
  • 5 . Successful completion of the certification process, confirming to both the certified professionals and their employers the set of core analytics skills they bring to a project team.

The CAP® exam measures performance across the seven major areas, or domains, of analytics practice: business problem framing, analytics problem framing, data, methodology selection, model building, deployment, and model life cycle management. See the "The Job Task Analysis ” section for more about the end-to-end process evaluated by the exam. The CAP® exam assesses a breadth of knowledge across the seven domains and not a depth of knowledge in any one particular area. Those interested in taking the CAP® exam should consider themselves to be analytics professionals or semi-professionals, and not analytics amateurs. They should be interested in adhering to the highest standards of analytics practice and pursuing continual professional development. See the Eligibility Requirements ” section for more on qualifying for the CAP® exam
