Yes, for the CCT Certification Course you will receive an AACEI accredited certification.

Generally, those seeking CCT certification represent early-career, young professionals who have not yet achieved the requisite years of experience needed to become a Certified Cost Professional (CCP). If you have sufficient experience, you might be interested in taking the CCP Course.
