SDG's Anita Geier has completed both the CSC’s Principles of Construction and Specifier 1 courses

Seferian Design Group is very pleased to announce that Anita Geier, our office controller has completed the second of three courses required by the CSC to pursue certification as a specification practitioner.

Anita will be taking the third component course Specifier 2 in March 2014.


Principles of Construction Documentation (PCD)
The PCD program provides a better understanding of construction documentation (specifications, drawings, and schedules), products, bidding procedures, and contracts.

  • Construction Process Production of Construction Documents
  • Forms of Contract
  • Codes and Standards
  • Risk Management Issues
  • Legal Issues
  • Building Science
  • Contract Administration
  • Communications

Specifier 1
The Specifier 1 course is an intermediate level course which takes the individual beyond the concepts previously introduced in the PCD Course. Although some of the same topics are included in this course, the depth of comprehension and explanation exceed that of the PCD course. The Specifier 1 course is a prerequisite for the Certified Specification Practitioner (CSP) designation from CSC. Successful completion of the course may be credited toward the experience component requirements for the Registered Specification Writer (RSW) designation.

  • Regulatory Requirements and Master Specifications
  • Specification Production
  • Specifier as a Research and Information Resource
  • Information Storage and Retrieval

The bonspiel was a fantastic way to beat the winter blues and network at the same time. Curling almost as good as Brad Jacobs and the gold medal team, the SDG team had a great time, shared some laughs, and look forward to next years’ bonspiel!
