IGMA 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/
