DBIA Designation

The Designated Design-Build Professional™ is a powerful and respected credential for those who wish to demonstrate educational mastery plus practical knowledge, skills, and experience in design-build project delivery.

Successful completion of the education, experience, and examination requirements of the program earn individuals the right to display “DBIA” after their names, identifying them to design-build end-users and the community at-large as experienced professionals in design-build project delivery.
