An approved application is any application that is reviewed by the Design-Build Certification Board, who approves the candidate’s experience in design-build or the design and construction industry.
Incomplete applications will not be processed or reviewed. Candidates will be notified of program acceptance no later than 30 business days after the completed application and all necessary documents have been received by DBIA.
Note: Applicants with a degree in an approved field of study are permitted to take the exam prior to having an approved application because, at minimum, they meet the requirements for an Assoc. DBIA®. However, this does not guarantee you will be approved as a Design-Build Professional® (DBIA®).
