Specifier

[for RSW (Registered Specifications Writer) &
CSP (Certified Specification Practitioner) candidates]

The RSW designation is the highest achievable accreditation which can be obtained by a Specification Writer. The RSW designation will attest to your knowledge of organizing and preparing accurate construction contract documents thereby enhancing your professional credibility through increased confidence placed in your work by your peers, employers and clients.

The CSP designation will show commitment to producing accurate documentation, by setting standards and quality of practice for specification writing through prescribed qualifications, courses and a demonstrated level of competence and ethical practices.

The Specifier course is designed to take the student beyond the concepts introduced in the PCD course and enhance their understanding and ability in the preparation of the project manual/specification. These courses can be credited towards the specification writing experience required to obtain the RSW designation, and are required to obtain the CSP designation.

NOTE:  This course combines the previous Specifier 1 and Specifier 2 courses.
