Want to Become a Certified Builder?
There's Never Been a Better Time

If you’ve been thinking about taking the certification exam, it’s time to stop thinking and start studying.

Why become certified? Certification is a great thing to add to your resume -- it shows you have proven expertise in a field that is becoming more competitive daily. It gives proof of your knowledge and your skill, and it makes you stand out among other applicants at the bid table. ASBA has also seen that certification has been required by those bidding out jobs, and the requirement that a certified builder be on the staff of the chosen company was found to be legally defensible. Even the courts agree: certification is a proven advantage.

ASBA has made it easy for you to become certified by offering the exam in multiple places, at multiple times.
Designations include:

  • Certified Tennis Court Builder (CTCB)

  • Certified Track Builder (CTB)

  • Certified Field Builder (CFB)

  • Certified Field Builder-Natural (CFB-N), or

  • Certified Field Builder-Synthetic (CFB-S)

Upcoming test dates are:

February 20, 2015
American Sports Builders Association Winter Meeting

Grand Lucayan Bahamas Resort

March 25, 2015

Hyatt Regency LaJolla
