CDT VIRTUAL ONLINE STUDY GROUP SESSIONS


CDT

INVITATION TO JOIN VIRTUAL ONLINE STUDY GROUP SESSIONS

Daryl Robinson, FCSI, CDT®, CCS, (Crandic & Pikes Peak Chapters/Certification Chair of North Central & Southwest Regions) and Michael Young, FCSI, CDT®, CCS, CCCA, (Denver & CSINext Chapters/Certification Chair of Denver Chapter) cordially invite you to participate in an upcoming series of online presentations.  It is our belief that every CSI member should have the CDT® certification suffix after their name.

Therefore, please plan on participating in our upcoming Online CDT® Study Group, which will begin on February 9, 2021.  The diversity of CSI members makes for a wide range of perspectives and experiences, which can be shared between the members attending the Study Group.  In fact, we are in the process of assembling a group of “professors” who will lead various portions of the Study Group discussions as subject matter experts.  The Study Group is offered for free to CSI members and for only $100 to non-members.  See additional information about the separate registration for the CDT® Exam below.

CSI IS RENOWNED IN THE INDUSTRY FOR ITS RIGOROUS CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS:

With the knowledge gained by studying, reviewing, and testing on the materials for the CDT® exam, you will be better prepared to do your daily job.  You will be more marketable and valuable to your company by understanding the basic contractual relationships and responsibilities of the parties involved in virtually every construction project.  There is no better way to demonstrate your superior abilities than with CSI's certification programs.  Only CSI has certification programs that benefit all disciplines in the building design and construction industry - because CSI is the only organization to represent ALL the members of the construction industry.  With CDT® after your name, you will belong to a select and highly respected group of construction professionals - architects, contractors, contract administrators, specifiers, manufacturer's representatives - known in the industry for their comprehensive knowledge of the writing and management of construction documents.

In the competitive construction industry, you have to prove yourself again and again.  CDT® is the foundation you need to gain that competitive advantage.  It is the cornerstone of CSI's certification programs - the real-world continuing education you need.  CDT® provides a comprehensive overview for anyone who writes, interprets, enforces, or manages construction documents.  You will be able to perform your job more effectively and improve communication among all members of the construction team.


HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BENEFITS OF CDT®:

The CDT® Certification will put you in an elite group of industry professionals whose expertise is recognized by an industry leader.  No matter what you do in construction, the CDT® is the program for you!  Putting CSI credentials after your name is the industry’s proof that you are among the industry’s best and shows that you have made a personal commitment to your profession.

CDT® can help you manage the complexities of a LEED project.  Site development, water efficiency, energy use, building materials, interior building systems, construction wastes and increased recycling - you have to manage it all when you are building to achieve LEED certification.

CDT® can help polish your resume.  It is harder and harder to stand out in the employment market right now.  CDT® can help pull your resume to the top of the heap.

CDT® will get you into CSI’s Certificants Directory, which helps the public find the right professional for the job - one who has demonstrated construction documentation skill by earning a CDT®, CCS, CCCA, or CCPR certification.

Once you are "CSI Certified," you will have demonstrated attainment of best practices knowledge from the industry leader in construction documentation, specification preparation, product representation, and contract administration.

The computer-based examination lasts two hours and contains 120 multiple-choice questions.  The exam is administered at Prometric test centers nationwide twice each year.  The next exam window will begin on May 3, 2021 and extends through June 4, 2021.
