The CCIFP certification is a time-limited credential with a duration of three (3) years. In order to maintain the credential, holders of the CCIFP designation are required to fulfill recertification requirements annually and triennially. The goal of the recertification process is to enhance continued competence in the field of construction financial management. Active CCIFPs may contact ICCIFP headquarters at 609-945-2400 regarding procedures for seeking Inactive or Retired status.
ICCIFP requires that each active Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) complete 72 hours of continuing education triennially to be eligible for renewal of their certification. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) or equivalent continuing education hours shall be relevant to the practice of construction financial management, and earned in the following ratio:
Candidates must assert that they have conducted themselves in an ethical manner in the past and must pledge to continue to do so in the future on an annual basis. As such, candidates must agree to adhere to ICCIFP's Code of Ethics and as it may be revised from time to time. Those who have had their credential revoked for unethical actions must list and describe all remedial steps they have taken since such revocation that would tend to reflect rehabilitation.
During the certification maintenance period, payment of the Annual Certification Maintenance Fee is required.
ICCIFP reserves the right to revoke the CCIFP credential under certain conditions, including but not limited to:
An individual whose credential has been revoked may re-apply for the credential after three (3) years of revocation provided that he/she submits a new application form, meets current eligibility requirements, takes the examination, and pays all applicable fees.
Candidates who have had their credential revoked for unethical actions (including, but not limited to, cheating and/or fraud related to the CCIFP exam, providing false information on the application, or being convicted of a felony) must list and describe all remedial steps they have taken since such revocation that would tend to reflect rehabilitation.
