PSU seniors take national construction exam

Forty-one seniors from Pittsburg State University’s Construction Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs took the eight-hour associate constructor professional exam this spring. PSU was one of the host sites for the national exam, which is sponsored by the American Institute of Constructors Certification Commission.

The exam is available for graduating seniors from accredited construction programs and construction professionals from the construction industry. Persons who pass the first eight-hour examination are certified as associate constructors by the American Institute of Constructors. A second-level examination is also available, which certifies successful participants as Certified Professional Constructors (CPC). The CPC certification is becoming a national standard for construction professionals in the United States, according to officials in PSU’s College of Technology.

PSU faculty members James Otter and Bill Strenth served as test administrators. Persons interested in the American Institute of Constructors examination process can visit the AIC Web site at www.constructorcertification.org or call 703-683-5053.
