CCIFP Month Tasha Gardner

How has receiving your CCIFP certification impacted your career?

The CCIFP demonstrated my commitment to construction finance and allowed me to join a group of first-class construction financial professionals in Maine. As an unintended bonus, the CPE requirements force me to continually seek out construction-specific education.


What are some of the top things you have a better understanding of after going through the certification process?

I learned a lot while studying for the exam, particularly in the risk management area.


What would you say to someone considering getting a CCIFP designation?

We are fortunate to work in a unique industry that offers a professional designation dedicated to our craft. You already know more than you think, and you'll learn so much more working toward the CCIFP designation.
