Registration Open for 2020 CSI Certification Classes

For the 38th consecutive year, the Construction Specifications Institute–Willamette Valley Chapter (CSI-WVC) is pleased to offer a series of classes on Construction Contract Documents in addition to another set covering Construction Contract Administration. The courses are beneficial to anyone in the AEC industry seeking foundational training in the preparation and use of construction documents.  

The evening classes begin in early January 2020 and continue weekly through the first part of March.

Construction Contract Documents (CDT) Classes:

Construction Contract Administration (CCA) Classes:

The venue for both courses will be the Eugene Builders Exchange, located at 2460 West 11th Avenue in Eugene. 

Both courses can help students develop 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

The Construction Documents program provides a comprehensive overview for anyone who writes, interprets, enforces, or manages construction documents. The Construction Contract Administration course goes further to emphasize the specific knowledge and skills necessary to administer and enforce construction contract documentation.  

Both classes serve as excellent means to prepare for CSI’s certification exams. Certification as a Construction Documents Technologist (CDT) means you have demonstrated ability to prepare, use, and interpret construction documents. CDT certification is a prerequisite to CSI’s advanced certifications, which include Certified Construction Specifier (CCS), Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA), and Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR). 

The classes are especially beneficial for emerging design & construction industry professionals, and to the firms for which they work.

Hundreds of local AEC professionals have already benefitted immeasurably by taking one or both CSI certification classes. Those who have understand the importance of clear, concise, correct, and complete construction documents, and more fully appreciate how projects unfold from conception to delivery.
