Certification

 

 Over 2,000 Certified Professionals and Growing!!

 


Certification provides the only measureable standard by which to judge one’s knowledge of  Design-Build Done Right™.
 
The Designated Design-Build Professional™ certification program has grown exponentially over the past ten years, and now public agency solicitations are beginning to expressly encourage the inclusion of team members with DBIA™ Certification.
 
DBIA offers certification in design-build project delivery to members and non-members alike, including:

  • Owners
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Project managers
  • Legal professionals
  • Academics

The Designated Design-Build Professional program is administered by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). This program is governed by a Certification Boarof Directors and is comprised of design and construction professionals who are responsible for policies and procedures affecting criteria for professional certification and the determination of individual certification status of candidates enrolled in the program.

 

 

 Owners are Making a Statement

 

Everyone from the owner to the subcontractors must understand the process, the expectations and fully engage in the collaborative process in order to achieve Design-Build Done Right. The growing number of both Associate DBIA designees and DBIA designees attest to the value local, state and federal governments see in educating their staffs in DBIA Best Practices.
