Obtain your “CPC” credential through the ABA!


CPC certification is perceived as the equivalent of an architect or engineer professional designation. Recent government and state contracting entities confirmed their intention to move toward a professional certification process for their construction and contract managers.  The intent is to require key members of the selected construction company’s project staff to be CPC certified.

As a leader in the country, ABA was originally selected as one of three test sites for the CPC exam. ABA members studied, tested and gained individual professional certification right here at our chapter and got ahead of the “certification curve.” Our program was SO successful that it is now the model for the country. Prep class attendance factored significantly into ABA members achieving the following outstanding results:

ABA Pass Rate 11% better than the national pass rate

ABA Passing Score10 points higher than the national mean

Who: Both general contractor and specialty contractors
