The CSI Chicago CDT® Exam Study Class is designed to better prepare attendees for the Construction Specification Institute’s Construction Documents Technology (CDT) Certification Exam. While earning the CDT certification is possible through individual study, attendees participating in a CDT Study Class greatly improve their chances of success. Participants can better develop a conceptual understanding of the overall construction process while also developing skills that can be utilized in any profession in the AEC industry.

 

CDT credentials are evidence of proven knowledge, education, and experience with construction documents and project delivery. Holding a certification demonstrates professional commitment, credibility, and reliability to employers, colleagues, and clients.

 

The CSI Chicago Certification Committee was the recipient of the 2021 Hans William Meier Award for Innovation of Certification Programs. This award is presented to a CSI member or team recognized by their peers as providing innovations in certification preparation and training methods or procedures.
