Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Viewpoint Construction Software®, a leading provider of innovative software solutions and services to the construction industry, congratulates The Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (ICCIFP) for its accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) designation.
The CCIFP designation establishes the standards for construction financial professionals by giving special recognition to those who demonstrate skill and proficiency in their field, verified through advanced education, professional experience and rigorous examination. The designation enjoys endorsements from CFMA, CICPAC, IRMI, NASBP and other well-respected construction industry groups.
“The accreditation validates something that Viewpoint has known and supported for years,” stated Chuck Elyea, CCIFP, Executive Director of the Viewpoint Business Incubator and ICCIFP Secretary. “Viewpoint takes seriously the importance of certification and understands that those financial professionals who have worked for the CCIFP designation are an invaluable asset to the companies they serve, supplying the specific know-how to best support and create healthy pathways for the construction industry. Viewpoint is the only software company with three employees who currently hold the CCIFP designation: Phil Zak who has served as a past National Chairman and two serving on the board of trustees - Tim Gray and myself.”
To encourage more individuals to earn their CCIFP designation, Viewpoint is sponsoring an exam during their annual User Conference, Collaborate 2014, held in Portland, Oregon, Sept. 22-25th. The exam will be administered Thursday, Sept. 25. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.iccifp.org.
ANSI, in its role as the only accreditor of U.S. voluntary consensus standards developing organizations, helps to ensure the integrity of the standards developers. The ANSI process serves all standardization efforts in the United States by providing and promoting a process that withstands scrutiny, while protecting the rights and interests of every participant. Recognized both nationally and internationally as the hallmark of a quality certification program, ANSI also actively engages in accrediting programs that assess conformance to standards – including globally-recognized cross-sector programs like the ISO 9000 (quality) management system.
Joselin R. Martin, CCIFP, current ICCIFP Chairman, states, “As we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the first CCIFP examination, this significant achievement is a timely one, and we look forward to meeting ongoing ANSI standards. Accreditation enhances the value of the CCIFP designation and elevates the position of our certified persons as the most valued financial professionals in the construction industry.”
ICCIFP is a national, not-for-profit corporation established in 2003 to promote the highest standards of construction financial management through the credentialing of construction financial professionals. Dedicated to advancing excellence and best practices in construction financial management, the CCIFP designation is the only industry-recognized certification that a financial professional truly knows the unique business of construction.
