AACE International is pleased to announce the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB) re-accredited AACE International’s Certified Cost Consultant (CCC), Certified Cost Engineer (CCE) and Certified Cost Technician (CCT) certifications at its recent 2012 Annual Meeting, for the maximum term of five years; each certification is accredited until December 31, 2016.
Valerie Venters, Chair of AACE International Certification Board, stated, “On behalf of the Certification Board, we are pleased to receive, for the first time since accreditation, the maximum accreditation period of five years with no mandatory actions required. The recent decision of the CESB Board is recognition of our efforts to ensure the quality and integrity of our certification program.”
AACE International’s Planning and Scheduling Professional (PSP) and Earned Value Professional (EVP) certifications are also accredited by CESB, expiring December 31, 2014. It is the intention of the Certification Board to submit an accreditation application for its Certified Estimating Professional (CEP) certification by December 31, 2012.
Accreditation involves a detailed evaluation of all aspects of a certification program’s operations to determine compliance with CESB’s Accreditation Guidelines.
CESB is an independent, voluntary membership body created for its member organizations who recognize, through specialty certification, the expertise of individuals practicing in engineering and related fields created in 1990. As an accrediting body, CESB provides basic criteria and guidelines for certification programs for engineers, technologists, technicians, and related scientific specialties.
