As part of its mission to promote and support quality construction education programs, ACCE has a Professional Development Certification Program to recognize industry-related professional development programs that meet ACCE certification criteria. This includes programs offered by Educational Institutions, Industry Associations, and private companies. Interested providers may obtain an application for certification from the ACCE President. Once the application is approved, the provider will be given the certification standards and asked to submit a Self-Evaluation Study. Upon successful review of the Self-Evaluation Study, the program provider will be issued a certificate and letter indicating that the program has met ACCE's certification criteria. The period of certification is for three years and can be renewed.


Professional Development Certification Documents and Forms can be found on the Forms & Documents page under the RESOURCES tab above or here.
