Benefits of Certification

The CCIFP designation:

  • Demonstrates commitment to excellence in construction industry financial management, and dedication to continuing education and quality improvement
  • Establishes our profession as having, valuing and maintaining the highest possible standards of knowledge, competence and ethical behavior – as high as any other profession on which business and the public rely
  • Sets our profession apart as one with its own unique skill set and body of knowledge, a level of attainment over and above that of financial generalists
  • Promotes the spread of best practices throughout financial professionals within the construction industry
  • Better prepares both firms and individuals for meeting the challenges ahead as information moves more quickly and construction industry financial management becomes more complex
  • Gives certified persons a powerful edge in an increasingly competitive industry and marketplace

ICCIFP’s Board of Trustees, with the assistance and advice of professionals in relevant fields, has developed a credential that will recognize accepted levels of expertise in the profession, with the goal of improving professional standards in construction financial management. Because of the frequent changes in construction financial management (including, but not limited to, technology, financial standards and tax regulations), ICCIFP updates exam materials and conducts a job task analysis (JTA) no less than every 7 years. This fulls scale JTA will reflect the most current state of the industry and serves as the basis for the content on the CCIFP examination. ICCIFP welcomes constructive comments and suggestions from the public and the profession.
