Certification provides the only measureable standard by which to judge "design-build done right.”
The Designated Design-Build Professional™ certification program has grown exponentially over the past ten years, and not surprisingly as it mirrors the expansion of design-build itself. There are currently over 2,000 design-build professionals and growing!
DBIA offers certification in design-build project delivery to members and non-members alike, our program educates owners as well as designers and builders on team-centered approaches to design and construction. Owners want successfully executed design-build projects and are looking for a demonstration of both relevant continuing education and experience – both of which can be gained through DBIA certification.
The Designated Design-Build Professional™ program is administered by the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). This program is governed by a Certification Board of 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.
