To over-simplify it, CCIM's are usually more "investment" brokers. That doesn't mean they don't have expertise in development, office, leasing, etc. CCIM's main education forte is investment concepts; what is the true value, lease v purchase, market projections, etc.
SIOR are more industrial and office based. Again, not to say SIOR's dont know investments as well as CCIM's, but that's not their main focus. An SIOR would typically represent a tenant in an office lease, a large REIT landlord analyze the financial backings of a possible tenant, etc.
Again, these are over simplifications, but hopefully you get the idea of the difference between the two.
