AAMA Offers New Aluminum Course

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Comment | More

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) announced the creation of a new online classroom educational courseaddressing the versatility of aluminum.

 

The course, “The Aluminum Advantage,” was developed by the association's Aluminum Material Council Strategic Marketing Task Group and is accredited through the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the AAMA said. The course details the attributes of aluminum as a building material, including structural integrity, impact resistance, design flexibility, and sustainability.

 

The course also features multiple case studies, including examples of buildings that utilize aluminum in order to gain LEED® certification.Nearly 65% of all the aluminum ever produced is still in use, and aluminum can be recycled repeatedly without loss of physical properties, the AAMA said.

 

In addition to course on aluminum, the AAMA offers four online courses and six additional classroom courses as part of the AAMA Continuing Education Licensing Program. The courses are available on the Continuing Education page of the AAMA Web site, located at http://www.aamanet.org/general.asp?sect=2&id=123.

 

As a free benefit to AAMA members, the Continuing Education Licensing Program allows representatives from member companies to present to architects courses that would qualify for credits through the AIA.

 

More information on AAMA’s continuing education offerings is available on the website located at www.aamanet.org.
