CSI Develops MasterFormat Training

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) released an outline for an industry-wide education program to help the commercial-institutional construction industry's transition to the 2004 edition of MasterFormat, a standard for organizing specifications and other information for construction projects. Training will be launched for MasterFormat users and prospective instructors.

The Customized Education Program will offer training directly to users of MasterFormat, such as architectural, engineering, and construction firms. The program will address differences between MasterFormat's 1995 and 2004 editions, best-practice concepts for the new edition, the use of its section numbers, and titles that directly affect a particular organization.

The MasterFormat Accredited Instructor Program will prepare people from various segments of the industry to teach others about the 2004 edition. Education programs are being developed for the 49th Annual CSI Show & Convention in Chicago, to be held April 20-23, 2005.
