Who Are We?

About AACE India

AACE India is the fastest-growing chapter of AACE International, the global not-for-profit professional association founded in 1956 with its headquarters in the USA. AACE has been active in India for almost a decade in smaller regional sections, but in 2016 and 2017 two very successful national-level conferences held in partnership with IIT Chennai prompted the decision to unify the various regional sections into a single AACE India Section.

AACE India in partnership with leading organizations and educational institutions plans to build a platform for developing professional talent in Cost Engineering and Project Control throughout the asset life cycle as well as cost management in manufacturing and service sectors. The Association believes these strategic initiatives will make infrastructure sectors in India much more efficient and effective, and enhance the business outcomes for all associated organizations, through globally proven systems, practices and methodologies.

AACE India will also offer training to the professional community in AACE's globally accredited certifications in various knowledge areas of Projects, Manufacturing and Service sector management, including: Certified Cost Professional (CCP), Certified Cost Technician (CCT), Certified Estimating Professional (CEP), Certified Forensic Claims Consultant (CFCC), Earned Value Professional (EVP), Decision and Risk Management Professional (DRMP), Certified Scheduling Technician (CST) and Planning & Scheduling Professional (PSP). AACE's CCP, CCT, CEP, CST, EVP, and PSP certifications are independently accredited by the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards.
