Construction Specification Institute’s Construction Documents Technology (CDT) Certification provides foundational training in construction process, roles and responsibilities, and construction documentation for architects, contractors, contract administrators, specifiers, and manufacturers’ representatives for decades. This study class will provide you a better understanding of how projects develop from conception to delivery and the documentation involved while helping you prepare for the CDT exam.
The class provides a conceptual understanding of the entire construction process, and concrete skills in construction documentation development and administration, specification writing and enforcement, product research and sourcing, communication with the design and contracting teams. Each class is taught by industry leaders from both the A/E and Product Representative Community. Classes include power point presentation followed up with quizzes that will help to reinforce the content of the session. The last class includes a practice exam to replicate the CDT exam. Attendees get exposure to industry leaders as teachers that are willing and able to answer questions.
