Is the CCCS/CCCA/CCDA qualification affiliated with any institutions?
What is the difference between the SCCSI membership and CCCS/CCCA/CCDA qualification?
How long is the CCCS/CCCA/CCDA qualification valid for?
The CCCS/CCCA/CCDA qualification is valid for three years; in order to maintain your certification, you should accumulate 30 units of Professional Development Hours (1 Unit = 1 Hour).
Certificate validity: 1 year, Renewal Fee: £99 per year (total, even if you have more than one certificate to renew).
In order to ensure the quality of your training, 15 units (out of the 30 units of PDH) must be obtained from SCCSI approved courses which can be found at www.constructionclaimsmastercourse.com Alternatively, if you are a member of the SCCSI, you can get access to approved courses via the SCCSI LMS at heavily discounted rates.
What are the contents of the LMS?
The CCCS/CCCA/CCDA programmes contain High Definition Video Tutorials (with multiple workshops in Excel and additional materials) which re-creates the ambience of a real-life seminar but allows students to progress at their own pace. Please note that you should be connected to the Internet to view the video tutorials.
Duration of HD VIDEO content ONLY:
CCCS = 20hrs21mins
CCCA FIDIC ‘99&2017=14hrs16mins
Please note that the courses contain large number of workshops and other materials for self-paced work and the amount of time which you will spend on it depends on you (you will have 1 year to access the course materials).
Based on our knowledge and feedback received, professionals who are working full-time take ca. 2-3 weeks to complete one course (each programme consists of several courses); on average, you need to spend ca. 20-30 hrs per each course (not programme). Therefore, the time for completion would depend on how much time you have to spare.
