This seminar is based on, and supported by, the CSI Project Delivery Practice Guide (PDPG) and the AIA Document, A201 General Conditions of the Contract for Construction. Although study materials will be handed out during the seminar, it is highly recommended that a copy of the PDPG be purchased if you plan on taking the Construction Documents Technologist (CDT) Examination, administered by CSI. It is the essential study guide for the CDT exam and a valuable office resource. The AIA A201 will be a part of the handout materials. Information on purchasing the PDPG is available on the CSI website at
