Construction Industry Craft Training (CICT) Program

Training Providers

Local Governments

The CICT Program is funded by fees collected monthly from municipalities and counties which issue non-residential construction building permits. The fee is equal to $1.00 per $1,000.00 of permitted non-residential construction value. Local governments' Total Value of Permitted Non-Residential Construction is based on construction cost estimates provided by permit applicants. CICT reports and fees must be remitted to DCM from counties and municipalities by the 20th day of the month following issuance of permits. Administrative Code 355-10-1 clarifies fee applicability, excluded entities, fee collection and fee calculation and payment. If total non-residential construction cost permitted for an entire month is less than $1,000.00, the CICT fee is $0.00; a monthly report of $0.00 must still be submitted to DCM by the 20th of the following month.

  • Counties and municipalities may remit monthly reports and fees online. Electronic payments have a 3.5% transaction fee of a credit card amount or a flat $3.50 transaction fee for an e-check. $0.00 monthly reports submitted online do not incur a processing fee.

  • Counties and municipalities may also remit monthly reports and fees by mailing a check, if any, and monthly report form to the DCM office. Instructions are on the downloadable monthly report form which automatically calculates the fee.

  • Local governments which do not issue commercial building permits must remit the Certification of Non-Applicability form by September 30 of each year.

Creation and Mission Statement

Act 2015-308, effective October 1, 2016, and updated by Act 2018-181, created the Construction Industry Craft Training Program to be administered by the Alabama Craft Training Board for the purpose of funding craft training programs.

          Our mission is to require those entities funded by the Alabama Craft Training Board who train Alabama‚Äôs construction workforce to meet standards set by this Board that fulfill the demands of the marketplace in the shortest time frame possible and equitably fund those programs from the Alabama Craft Training receipts.
