In 1995, the National Association of Programmers (NAP) was
formed. The primary objectives of NAP were to become the voice
of the profession, to establish both alternative and
complementary certification programs for IT professionals, to
provide publishing opportunities as well as association
leadership positions for member professionals.
From the beginning, members worldwide have realized member-only
discounts from major computer suppliers, travel and hospitality
discounts, as well as training discounts. Member volunteers and
NAP leadership have striven to make our Association the gold
standard of certification, both professional and reference
validation for employers and potential employers. While student
members enjoy their membership status and look forward to full
membership and the NAP job bank which could land them a great
job in the future.
NAP is a non-biased, non-platform specific body with established
standards for certifications based upon knowledge, education and
experience gained. NAP has created a Professional Code of Ethics
which all members must adhere to.
NAP is the professional association for anyone in the
computer/IT industry who desires to excel in this industry and
to provide a positive public awareness of what the professionals
in our industry provide.
We invite you to join NAP and join the thousands of other
recognized IT professional working to enhance and improve our
industry in the 21st century.
