We spoke to T.J. Gottwalt, DHT, AHC, CDC, FDAI, FCSI, CDT, CCPR, CM-BIM, about what certification means to him.
Are you a member of CSI and if so, how long?
Yes. I’ve been a continuous member since February of 1991.
When did you first obtain a CSI credential and which do you have?
I obtained my CDT from CSI in 1996. Since then I earned the CCPR credential in 2008.
How has CSI certification impacted you, both personally and professionally?
I place great emphasis on the certifications I hold. Professionally, gaining CSI certification has opened many doors for me that otherwise would not have been opened. Many times, it has meant the difference between me obtaining a project over my competitors. This is exactly the type of competitive advantage companies are looking for today. Personally, it has been very rewarding gaining the knowledge directly relating to my industry, and earning the respect of those I call on.
