CDT Study Sessions
1. What is the CDT certificate?
CDT = Construction Documents Technologist, the first level of CSI certification.
Getting your CDT means:
~ Adding "CDT" after your name, to your business card and to your resume
~ Understanding how a project unfolds from conception to delivery
~ Understanding the documentation involved
~ Getting listed in the Certificant's Directory

2. Am I a good candidate?
Of course! CSI's CDT program has provided foundation training in construction documentation for architects, contractors, contract administrators, specifiers, and manufacturers' representatives for decades. There are no prerequisites for the CDT certificate exam. As the cornerstone of CSI's certification program, it's also prerequisite to CSI's advanced certification exams: Certified Construction Specifier (CCS), Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA), or Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR) certification.

3. When and where is the exam administered?
Exams will be offered April 2 - April 28, 2012, in the U.S. & Canada. The CDT will be administered via computer-based testing at Prometric test centers throughout the U.S. Prometric is a recognized leader in technology-enabled testing and assessment services. To view the Prometric test center locations, visit and select "Locate a Testing Center."
