CERTIFIED CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS
The Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP®) designation is the only certification for construction financial professionals and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO 17024:2012. The ICCIFP provides the construction industry with a third-party verification of an individual’s knowledge, which is essential to ethical financial management in today’s complex construction industry.
Many public accounting firms have construction clients, but construction may not be a major practice area. The firms that have CCIFPs on staff have demonstrated commitment to the industry and competence in construction financial management.
Public accounting professionals with the CCIFP® designation must have a minimum 4,000 hours professional experience in construction in addition to showing expertise in eight knowledge domains, and only two of the knowledge domains are accounting related:
- Accounting and reporting
- Income recognition methods
- Risk management
- Budgeting and planning
- Human resources
- Information technology
