Whether a CPA or a contractor, being a Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP®) is not only a mark of distinction; it is a demonstration of commitment to continuing education and sound knowledge about the business of construction, and the best way to maintain the knowledge demanded by this rapidly changing environment.
Contractors: Quality, safety and time are on the top of your list as you plan, develop and coordinate a construction project. Others look to you for guidance with labor and materials, which will yield flawless and timely results. Your recommendations to correct and improve building plans are invaluable, and your insight into budgetary needs to ensure a project’s success is necessary.
CPAs: The industry is extremely complex from a financial perspective, and clients need to know that they have a professional by their side with the experience and knowledge to guide them through vital financial issues.
The Value Behind CCIFP
The Institute sets high standards for achieving the prestigious CCIFP credential. To even be considered eligible to sit for the certification examination, applicants must meet the minimum requirements in the areas of formal education and professional experience. Their work experience is verified, and they must agree to adhere to ICCIFP’s Code of Ethics.
To maintain active certification, the Institute requires that each CCIFP complete a minimum of 72 hours of continuing education triennially, demonstrating that they have continued employment as a construction financial professional and reaffirming the Code of Ethics.
