The Construction Specifications Institute has initiated the development of the new Construction Education Network, a provider program that encompasses the complete building industry spectrum-specifiers, architects, engineers, designers, building owners, contractors, product manufacturer representatives and other related professionals.

The network will provide an automated system for tracking continuing education credit, as well as assuring quality educational programs and recognition of these programs in the building industry. The new, automated program will not only bring together a number of existing educational initiatives within the institute, as well as creating several new opportunities for education delivery but it will also make it easier for all involved by centralizing and automating most of the functions related to the registration and tracking of educational credits. CSI will offer a variety of support options for education providers, instructors and students. The infrastructure for the CEN will be formalized over the next few months and officially launched at The 2007 CSI Show, located in Baltimore, June 20 through 22.
