Abstract: This paper presents findings from a preliminary review of the status of training and certification in computing in construction. A review of the academic literature, market trends, and a questionnaire-based survey validate the demand for training and certification in computing in construction. The findings reveal the need for a detailed articulation of areas within computing and construction that require training and certification. There is an expectation that academia and professional associations will lead training and certification to ensure quality. There is a need to train and certify trainers to ensure quality and build capacity to decentralize the training and certification ecosystem.
Keywords: Training, Certification, Computing in Construction, Quality, Decentralisation
