CSI Certification

CSI is the construction community's authority on communication and construction documentation.  Through CSI's Certification Programs, you can develop both 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

CSI's Construction Document's Technologist (CDT) certificate is a prerequisite to CSI's Certifications:  Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA); Certified Construction Specifier (CCS) and Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR).

CSI offers the CDT, CCCA, CCPR and CCS examinations twice annually in the Spring and the Fall.
