What is the CNAP Certification?
The Certified Nonprofit Accounting Professional (CNAP) is sponsored by member firms of The Nonprofit CPAs Alliance, the Certified Nonprofit Accounting Professional (CNAP) program is designed to recognize excellence in the not-for-profit industry through comprehensive qualification, training, and examination.
The program is beneficial for bookkeepers, staff accountants, and any professional charged with the financial management of a not-for-profit organization. Through a minimal time commitment, participants receive intensive training from individuals dedicated to serving not-for-profit organizations.
We asked a few of our CNAP trainers about the benefits of CNAP, why someone would want to attend a CNAP class, what an ideal candidate looks like, and to explain how CNAP has helped their past participants. Take a moment to watch the video below, and hear what they have to say.
