Vancouver Chapter hosting PCD and CTR courses next month

August 29, 2017

The Vancouver Chapter of CSC is running two education courses in September—the Principles of Construction Documentation (PCD) and Technical Representative (TR) programs.

The 10-week PCD[1], a prerequisite for TR (as well as the Construction Administration (CA) and Specifier courses), kicks off on Monday, September 11 at the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) offices[2], starting at 6 p.m. This introductory course offers an understanding of construction documentation, products, bidding procedures, and contracts. It emphasizes the relationship between specifications and drawings, and the role of the industry participants.

The TR course[3], which leads to a Certified Technical Representative (CTR) designation, provides a better understanding of contract documents and bidding procedures, product representation, professionalism, and ethics, building on what is introduced in the PCD. The 14-week course takes place Wednesdays at the VRCA offices, starting on September 13 at 6 p.m. It is designed for the individual involved in the supply section of the construction industry such as manufacturer representatives, agents or distributors of products. The student will have successfully completed the PCD course.
