What subjects are reqired to become a Private Secretary?

A degree is not required, but competitive applicants may wish to earn an associate's or bachelor's degree in secretarial science or office administration. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) eliminated the Certified Professional Secretary (CPS) credential as of November 2011. At that time, individuals holding the CPS designation were switched to the Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) credential, which is now the basic credential IAAP awards to secretaries. Those seeking certification need a combination of administrative experience and education to be eligible for the CAP designation.
