Using CSI in the classroom


CSI is a critical resource for college-level instructors who want to teach their students the roles, responsibilities and relationships of the entire construction team -- and how they'll fit into the construction world once they graduate. Use the student edition of CSI's Practice Guides to expand your students' understanding of construction!


The Project Delivery Education Program (PDEP) is an instructional tool that addresses topics essential to understand the proper use of construction related documents. The PDEP incorporates concepts from the Project Delivery Practice Guide™, MasterFormat™, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Green Building - GreenFormat™ and Sustainability as well as additional resources.
