The Constructor Certification Commission is a semi-autonomous organization within AIC that oversees the AIC certification program, including the creation of the examination and the policies and procedures that govern the program. The Commission is governed by a Board of Governors. We require that constructors complete a pre-approval process before taking our exams to ensure that you qualify for the program. The following are our exam policies.

In addition, The Commission does not contract with any entity for certification decisions. All Commission business shall be conducted in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and all Federal Antitrust legislation.
