A Message for Chapter and Region Leaders

Beginning on July 1, 2018, the CDT certification will renew on a three-year cycle and carry with it the following renewal requirements:

Click for more information


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.
