Center for JOC Excellence and Arizona State University are the founding partners of the Job Order Contracting Certificate Program. In addition to the certification class, CJE administers the national credentialing program for Job Order Contracting titled Certified Job Order Contracting Professional™ (CJP). Graduating from the certificate program provides evidence of education in approved Best Practices. Obtaining the CJP credential is the measurable standard by which to judge one’s knowledge and experience as a true JOC professional.
The Certified Job Order Contracting Professional™ (CJP) designation program has grown exponentially, and now public agency solicitations are beginning to expressly evaluate the inclusion of team members with both certificate of completion for the training and the CJP designation. The training and credentials validate expertise in the selection process.
The CJP program is administered by the Center for JOC Excellence (CJE). This program is governed by a Certification Board and is comprised of credentialed professionals who are responsible for policies and procedures affecting the criteria and guidebook for professional certification and recertification. Candidates must submit their application for status determination of candidates enrolled in the program.
The online JOC Training Program (a prerequisite for the credentials) is available through the integrated LMS and in-person training is scheduled based on demand. We encourage all industry professionals to take the course.
