Certify Competencies. Establish Credibility. Lead Confidently.


About CASP

Keep your campus current and competitive with a CASP professional leading your auxiliaries.

Certified Auxiliary Services Professional. The only benchmark certification that measures the needed competencies of college and university executives who oversee multiple auxiliary services.

CASP adds value to your institution by:

  • Easing leadership succession and staff transitions
  • Improving cross-departmental collaboration and decision making
  • Minimizing conflict when auxiliary services integrate
  • Increasing operational efficiencies and revenues
  • Enhancing campus-wide upgrades in contemporary ways

This certification offers an accelerated track to obtain necessary cross-functional knowledge and fills competency gaps to build confidence in new leaders and in those who hire them.

Supporting Institutions

Institutions everywhere are hiring CASPs and certifying current staff. Why? Because CASP builds confidence by instilling success in auxiliary services. Below are a list of the institutions where you can find our over 100 designees.

Prepare for CASP

NACAS offers helpful information, tools, guides, and study groups to help exam takers prepare for testing day. Applicants are encouraged to access all preparatory resources to help master exam content areas, decrease test anxiety, and bond with other auxiliary professionals who are on the same path to certification.

Apply for CASP

Campus auxiliary service professionals who are eligible to sit for the CASP exam are encouraged to begin the application process well in advance of their preferred testing date, so they allow plenty of time to prepare.

CASP Recertification

As with most certification programs, recertification procedures are established to ensure designees are keeping up with changes and best practices in their profession and upholding the merit that is associated with their designation. Campus auxiliary service leaders who pass the certification exam are CASP for four years. To renew a CASP designation, certain recertification requirements must be met.
