CSI Certifications

‚ÄčCDT Update-

There have been significant changes to the CDT Certification over the last few years:

  • The current reference book is the Project Delivery Practice Guide (PDPG) Second Edition. The Third Edition is scheduled for release mid-late 2020.
  • The CDT is now a 3-year renewal cycle CERTIFICATION with continuing education requirements. If you currently hold a CDT, the 3-year renewal period begins July 1, so the first renewal year will be 2021. If you hold an advanced Certification, some of the continuing education credits you accumulate for your advanced Certification may also qualify for the CDT Continuing Education requirements. Continuing education credits are self reporting on Institute's website.
  • Those with an advanced Certification are not required to maintain their CDT Certification, but they may if they wish.
  • The CDT Certification is no longer a prerequisite for the advanced Certifications.

If I have further questions, who should I contact?
