About the course

Cost engineering is a mix of several disciplines. A good cost engineer is a technician at heart, but one who can dissect a project into stages. The art of cost engineering is assigning value to that which has been or will be engineered. The certification course will teach you the techniques of estimating, planning and cost control for the various stages of a project. Having this knowledge will kick-start your career in the industry.

What you’ll learn

By the end of the course, you will have gained:

  • To provide the complete scope of estimating, planning and cost control.
  • An opportynity to become a successful project manager.
  • To take the necessary steps towards becoming a Certified Cost Technician (CCT).


Generally, those seeking CCT certification represent early-career, young professionals who have not yet achieved the requisite years of experience needed to become a Certified Cost Professional (CCP). If you have sufficient experience, you might be interested in taking the CCP Course. After obtaining your CCT certification, you will need to follow the two CCP-specifc days, write a paper and take the CCP exam.
