Competency Assessment Program from the CAP was designed as a tool to help labs meet CAP laboratory accreditation and CLIA requirements for competency. Because every laboratory is unique, the program allows you to customize CAP-provided courses and checklists to match your needs. You also can create new courses and checklists to suit your particular lab. This chart shows how the Competency Assessment Program tools can help you satisfy the elements of competency included in the Laboratory General Checklist question GEN.55500.
