JBU Students Excell On Construction Certification Commission
Siloam Springs, Ark (October 17, 1997) - Recently published results of the Constructor Certification Commission's (CCC) testing show that the 1997 graduating class from John Brown University's construction management program did very well.
In Sept., the CCC published the results of the first year's testing of senior construction management students. JBU's 1997 senior construction management majors had a passing rate of 86%. The national average passing rate for that same period was 57%.
"I am very pleased to see such a high passing rate for our graduates," said Associate Professor of Construction Management James Caldwell. "It is a reflection of the quality of students who are a part of our program."
The CCC was formed to issue credentials to those professionals who will be managing total construction processes. After taking the senior test, the next step toward full certification for each professional will be a four-year period of holding a responsible job in some area of construction management. After that time the construction manager takes another eight-hour examination to become certified.
