CCIFP Spotlight

Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals

Porte Brown is proud to have seven Certified Construction Industry Professionals. The CCIFP designation demonstrates a thorough understanding of the construction industry’s financial rules and regulations. The Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals employs a rigorous test based on current practices and is representative of the activities a construction financial professional faces on a daily basis. The CCIFP designation is one of the few financial management certifications for the construction industry that truly exemplifies the very best of what the construction financial industry has to offer.

We believe it is important for our staff to have the necessary specialized training to provide the highest standard of accounting services in the construction industry. The CCIFP designation permits Porte Brown to provide additional guidance the average accounting firm simply cannot provide for construction firms.
