About the Constructor Certification Commission
Share |
The Constructor Certification Commission was established by the AIC in 1996 to administer the Constructor Certification Program.  The Commission, as it is often called, operates as a semi-autonomous organization outside of the normal AIC Committee Structure.  This is to ensure that the Commission can make impartial decisions regarding the Certification program.

The Commission oversees both the Associate Constructor and the Certified Professional Constructor programs and operates a number of Committees to ensure the success of each program.  The Commission is governed by a Board of Governors, which includes 4 Elected Governors, 4 AIC Appointed Governors, and a Public Member.  In addition the Commission has a Board of Advisers made up of industry professionals, representatives of industry associations, and educational institutions.

The Constructor Certification Commission understands the importance of impartiality and potential conflicts of interests in carrying out its certification activities. The Commission guards against impartiality by closely following its Operating Procedures (Commission Document No. 1) and its Policies and Procedures. Furthermore, the Commission effectively manages conflicts of interest and objectivity by training systems put in place and detailed within Commission Policy 5.9. These systems ensure that the Commission operates in an independent and impartial manner.  In addition, the Commission complies with it's own conflict of interest Policy 5.5.
