CCIFP Emeritus Status

CCIFP Emeritus status allows currently certified CCIFP certificates whose status is in good standing to continue to use their designation after they retire from the Construction Finance profession without having to recertify.

Please consider the Emeritus Status carefully before you request. CCIFP certificates awarded the Emeritus Status who later decide to re-enter the Construction Finance profession will have the Emeritus status revoked and will no longer be considered in good standing and will have to retake the qualifying CCIFP exam.

Those who plan to continue doing part-time work in the Construction Finance Profession, perhaps as a consultant or as a lecturer, are not eligible for Emeritus status. They must complete a Retired Status Application.

To request and use the Emeritus status, please follow these steps:

  • Have been a CCIFP® professional for at least 10 years.
  • Must be at least 60 years of age and retiring from the Construction Finance Industry
