The PCD course is an introductory course that will enable the student to have a better understanding of construction documentation (specifications, drawings and schedules), products, bidding procedures and contracts. It is also prerequisite to all the other CSC education courses.The PCD course is a prerequisite for the Certified Technical Representative (CTR),Certified Construction Contract Administrator (CCCA) and Certified Specification Practitioner (CSP) designations from CSC. Successful completion of the PCD may be credited toward the experience component requirements for the Registered Specification Writer (RSW) designation.The course is designed for individuals involved in the construction industry, who at any point in their career are required to produce, read, supply products for, or rely on, the project manual/specification. In other words, it is designed for anyone in construction, whether they work as a designer, consultant, contractor or supplier.The focus is to emphasize the relationship that exists between specifications and drawings, and the role of the industry participants. Contract documents and the project manual have an intrinsic relationship with each other, with standard pre-printed contract documents, and with associated documents; this course explains these relationships.
