IV:07:20 Salary Increase for Attaining Certified Administrative Professional Status

Employees who work in a clerical-secretarial or clerical management non-exempt position who pass the Certified Administrative Professional Examination (CAP) shall be granted a nine percent (9%) increase in salary following receipt of official notice of the certification by Office of Human Resource Services. Clerical-secretarial or clerical management non-exempt positions are defined as those positions that are a classification of EEO 40 or EEO 50. Exempt employees are not eligible for the increase. Employees may contact Office of Human Resource Services at 898-2929 with questions regarding eligibility for the increase.

Certification increases shall become effective with the next pay period after the employee's passing grades on all parts of the examination are certified by the Institute of Certifying Secretaries (International Association of Administrative Professionals Institute (IAAP)). The certification date is located in the upper left-hand corner of the Candidate Performance Report generated by IAAP. (It is not the date that the test is administered nor the date that the report from IAAP is received.) It is the employees' responsibility to provide the appropriate verification to Human Resource Services.

An employee must pass the exam sponsored by the IAAP in order to receive the 9% increase. Individuals who previously received the 9% increase are not eligible for a subsequent 9% increase for passing the Certified Administrative Professional exam.
