CAPS (Certification/Curriculum Assignment Policies System), created by Georgia Professional Standards Commission Rule 505-2-.26 (.pdf) (requires Adobe Reader) titled "IN-FIELD ASSIGNMENTS", is a web-based resource that aligns courses in the Georgia state-approved curriculum with the Georgia certificate(s) that are in-field to teach that course. The system allows a user to find a course and its appropriate certificates using four different search criteria: by choosing a subject area, entering a course number, entering an exact title or partial title, and/or choosing a grade level. CAPS also allow a user to choose a certificate field and display the courses that that specific certificate is in-field with.

Courses listed in CAPS are described in Rule 160-4-2-.03 LIST OF STATE-FUNDED K-8 SUBJECTS AND 9-12 COURSES" (.pdf) (requires Adobe Reader).
