Courses Materials
Course instruction and certification exams focus largely on the CSI Project Delivery Practice Guide (PDPG). It is a valuable asset for course and exam study, as well as personal practice. The Cook Inlet Chapter is attempting to offer a limited supply of the PDPG’s for purchase by course attendants at a discounted rate. CSI Member retail pricing for the manual is approximately $99 plus shipping. Discount pricing will be determined at a later date. You may take the course without taking the exam.

Certification Exams
Registration forms to take the exam and exam fees for the CDT Certification Exam must be submitted separately to the Institute office of CSI. You can get information and forms under the Certification tab at www.csiresources.org. NOTE – EXAM REGISTRATION DEADLINES ARE INDEPENDENT OF PREPARATION COURSE DEADLINES, and early registration discounts apply to exam only. The standard exam registration deadline for the April 15th - May 24th test window is April 10, 2019 and late registration is from April 11 – April 30, 2019. There is a substantial increase between the Standard and Final Registration rates so you will want to register for the exam as early as possible.

Note: All CSI exams have moved to Computer Based Testing and are offered at computerized testing locations throughout the U.S. and Canada twice a year. Candidates are cautioned to complete exam registration early. Confusion in the past has resulted in class attendants becoming ineligible to sit for certification exams due to space limitations at exam testing sites. For more information and brochures, visit the new CSI web site at www.csiresources.org and follow the links for Certification, or call 1-800-689-2900.
