We're back!

Thank you for your patience. We've been working very hard to put together an entirely new workshop focused on the new Prac 2.0. You may read the Workshop Overview on this website along with the workshops that we have scheduled and any that are in progress.

As with the last version of the exam, understanding the NCIDQ Building Codes given to you is of the utmost importance. The new list of codes has grown to 16 pages, up from the former 4 pages. We urge everyone to download the new codes and start familiarizing yourselves on them as soon as you can. Please visit the CIDQ website to download the new codes.

We ask that you frequently check back with us to see additional workshops and information.

Thank you,

Phyllis and Cheryl
