Accredited Tier Professional Eligibility

The Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Professional program is intended for graduates of the Accredited Tier Designer or Accredited Tier Specialist programs who wish to advance their expertise and designation. The program provides advanced multiple-disciplinary concepts necessary to achieve project design objectives based on the Uptime Institute Tier Standards criteria. The curriculum crosses traditional engineering-discipline boundaries, thus will suit design professionals who are responsible for project delivery.

  • Engineers-of-Record
  • Design-Build Team Senior Project Managers

Successful completion of the Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Professional program, demonstrated through examination at the end of the course, will result in an Uptime Institute endorsement of the individual as an Accredited Tier Professional.
