PDRI Facilitation Certification Training

Upcoming CII Courses


Project Definition Rating Index PDRI


Learn how to implement the Construction Industry Institute (CII) tool that has revolutionized front end planning and markedly improved performance on major construction project costs, schedules and virtually all operational characteristics. Over the past two decades, researchers at Arizona State University have developed five widely-used scope definition tools to enhance front end planning; these tools are called the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI), each having a specific focus on three industry sectors: industrial, infrastructure or building; and further focused on large and small projects.

Taken together, this suite of tools provides those involved in project planning, design, and construction in these industry sectors a way to proactively prevent missteps and mistakes, and dramatically raise the likelihood of project success. This course is offered by the developers of these tools and focuses on how and when to most effectively employ each. It will overview details about the PDRI and its use, and include advanced facilitation instruction incorporating a hands-on PDRI facilitation exercise; use of the PDRI software tools will be demonstrated, including PDRI-Industrial 5.0, which includes both maturity and accuracy assessments.

The class is the first step in becoming a Certified PDRI Facilitator through Arizona State University. Certification is optional and includes a written exam, which will be offered at the end of the class and a subsequent take-home PDRI exercise focused on a real project that will be evaluated by the course instructors prior to certification. CEUs will be provided for this training.

Instructor: Edd Gibson, Avi Wiezel

This course is delivered in person using a combination of lectures, audio/visual presentations, group workshops, and hands-on demonstrations.
