CCPR™


CCPR is back
 
with a new look! 

The Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPRTM) exam designation has changed to bring more value to the profession and boost job potential and marketability for those who become certified.

A Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR), must now earn and maintain both the CDT® and CCPRTM certifications. This dual certification (CDT+CCPR) demonstrates you have foundational knowledge about the project delivery process, team members’ roles, and construction documents AND specialty expertise in your role and responsibilities as a product representative.

Earning your dual certification will immediately establish your credibility with specifiers. They will know you have what it takes to get the job done right. 

Dual certification holders will:

  • Increase your earning potential
  • Differentiate you from your peers
  • Position you as a trusted advisor



What’s the CDT+CCPR and how is it different from CCPR?
 

To be a Certified Construction Product Representative (CDT+CCPR), you must earn and maintain both the CDT and CCPR certifications. 

In a CSI survey of construction product/manufacturer representatives conducted in Fall 2020, the findings concluded the CDT exam contained knowledge vital to the role of someone at the level of a CCPR. The CDT provides foundational knowledge about the project delivery process, team members’ roles, and construction documents – all critical intel for a product representative. The CCPR validates your specialty expertise by going deeper into the roles and responsibilities of a product representative while also emphasizing the importance of professional development and relationship building.

Together, CDT + CCPR is a powerful tool that elevates your profession. Dual-certified product representatives enhance their knowledge and confidence, increasing their marketability.

Revised knowledge domains and content in the CCPR exam reflect how product representatives conduct business in today’s marketplace. The exam is shorter, reducing overlap with the CDT exam. It consists of 70-75 questions focused on these knowledge domains: 

Effective 2021
Pre-Design 30%
Design Phase 26%
Procurement 15%
Construction 16%
Professional Development & Relationship Building 13%
100%

 

What if I'm already a CCPR? 
If you earned your CCPR before 2019, then you also took and passed the CDT prior to taking the CCPR exam. You may decide to:

  • maintain both credentials. CCPRs who maintain their CDT can choose to use the CCPR designation or the CDT+CCPR designation. 
  • maintain only the CCPR. CCPRs who do not maintain their CDT may use only the CCPR designation.


If your CDT lapsed during the most recent recertification window and you’re interested in reinstatement, please contact the Certification Team to discuss your options.
