    CSI acknowledges that past communication regarding renewal requirements for CSI certifications has been inconsistent. To address this issue and provide a solution, CSI is offering a one-time Lapsed Certification Reinstatement Program.

    The one-time reinstatement period will be open April 15 to October 15, 2018. This offer is available to any individual having held a CSI certification which lapsed on or after June 30, 2014

    The following certifications will be included in the program:
    • Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA)
    • Certified Construction Specifier (CCS)
    • Certified Construction Product Representative (CCPR)
    The Lapsed Certification Reinstatement Program offers a clear path for applicants to update their credentials.
