CDB 255 Form Training Video:

CDB has developed a 30 minute training video to provide instructions and tips to A/E's regarding the preparation and submittal of the 255 form. This form is the essential document that the A/E's will submit when requesting consideration for selection for an advertised project. The training is presented in a format specifically for a new A/E that is not familiar with the CDB A/E selection process. It will also provide useful information as a refresher to A/E's who have previously submitted for CDB projects.
