This course provides students with a detail understanding of scope of the Certified Cost Professional Certification Examination, and prepare for it. While we have provided complete coverage of knowledge area and the concepts, this course does not provide fundamental education on the basics of cost engineering. It is expected from the student to have certain minimum education in the field of cost engineering, and importantly work experience as required to sit for the CCP certification exam . While students can ask as many numbers of questions from the trainers, however, they must understand that the objective of this course is not to provide elementary education in cost engineering but to help students sit for CCP Exam.


AACE International recommends texts for study for CCP:

1. AACE International CCC/CCE Certification Study Guide, 3rd edition (or 2nd edition if you already have it)
2. Skills & Knowledge of Cost Engineering, 5th edition (4th edition if you already have it)
3. Recommended Practices RP 11R-88 and RP 10S-90.



Book #1 and #2 costs $50 each for AACE International members and can be purchased from AACE website. Recommended Practices RP 11R-88 and RP 10S-90 are available for free download at AACE International website.
