Recognized as AIA/CES Provider
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has recognized the Insulating Glass
Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) as a registered provider of educational programs
for architects. Simultaneously, IGMA is posting its first course "The Power
of Certified & Tested Insulating Glass Units" onto the website of Architectural
Record magazine, downloadable in a PDF format.
According to an IGMA news release, architects taking the course will understand
the relevance of the new harmonized insulating glass (IG) standard and its importance
to the architectural and specification community.
Further, IGMA says the course will enable architects to identify some of the
differences between the new standard and its predecessor and become familiar with
insulating glass certification and testing programs, their impact on the longevity
of these units and the overall credibility of the building envelope.
"We've worked on preparing this program for more than a year. It was developed
together with our members and architects to assist our friends in architecture
in understanding our industry products and services thus enabling them to more
easily specify this all important building envelope component," said Margaret
Webb, IGMA's Executive Director.
Architects can access this course for AIA credits by visiting the Architectural
Record website archrecord.construction.com/resources/conteduc/
