MasterFormat Education Programs Planned
One type of program being developed is customized education for users - architectural, engineering, construction firms, etc. The other is an Accredited Instructor Program to prepare people from various segments of the industry to teach others about MasterFormat's 2004 edition. Programs are also being developed for the annual CSI show in Chicago, April 20-23, 2005.
In anticipation of its release, a number of major public and private construction organizations have decided to make the transition to the new edition, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Command, the Sweets construction product catalog, Reed Construction Data's First Source, and Victor O. Schinnerer & Co., one of the largest professional liability insurance underwriters.
