– AIA Online Continuing Education: The American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Continuing Education (CE) Program requires Architect members to earn a specific number of Learning Units (LU’s) each year.* As part of this program, material manufacturers have traditionally conducted lunchtime presentations at individual architectural firms. When the AIA recently broadened the parameters to include distance learning, Florock jumped at the chance to develop an internet-based CE course.
The new online course, “Resinous Flooring – Everything You Need to Know, Without Reading the Manual”, is AIA Approved. It enables AIA members and non-members to earn a Certificate of Completion by passing a multiple choice test at the end of the one hour presentation.
In addition, AIA members can earn 1 Learning Unit in Health Safety & Welfare, as well as in Sustainable Design (1 LU/HSW/SD).* The AIA Registered CE Course is free of charge and is conveniently available 24/7 – no appointment necessary!
– Interactive Product Finder: This handy tool helps specifiers hone in quickly on the right industrial flooring for their application. By clicking on one of the industries or products listed, viewers are linked directly to a page with the additional information they’re looking for.
– Detail Drawings: In addition to 3-part architectural flooring specs, downloadable detail drawings are now available via the “View Our Specifications” page.
– LEED’s: Click on this link to learn how Florock products can contribute to U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED points.
– Colors: At the bottom of the Architect Center page is the new “See Our Colors” feature, where designers can connect to the Florock Color Chart, plus the decorative FloroQuartz and FloroChip Blend Selections, all from one location.
We hope you’ll find the new Architect Center useful. Please let us know what you think.
Wishing Everyone Happy Holidays and a Healthy & Prosperous New Year!
