PPG Offers Course on Cool-Roof Coatings

Friday, March 5, 2010

Comment | More

PPG Industries Inc.’s industrial coatings business announced the availability of an educational program, “Cool Coatings for Metal Roofing,” an American Institute of Architects’ Continuing Education Service (AIA/CES) course.

The designated sustainable design (SD) course also can provide Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credit, the company said.

The courses are taught by PPG representatives throughout the United States, and can be scheduled as lunch presentations at architectural firms or at the time and place of a firm’s choice. Each course lasts for approximately one hour.

The company said the four learning objectives of the new AIA/CES course are to familiarize architects with:

• Key terms and definitions that relate to cool roofing;

• How cool roofing works and its benefits and attributes;

• Current cool-roofing specifications, codes, regulations, and guidelines in the U.S.; and

• Research that validates the cool roof concept.

With the new course, PPG said it offers classroom instruction for 18 AIA/CES-approved courses. PPG also offers eight courses approved by AIA for distance learning, enabling architects to take classes at their computers or to download content as a slideshow or printed document. The distance-learning courses, which provide one learning-unit credit upon successful completion, are available at no charge at www.ArchitectCES.com.

A complete list of AIA/CES courses available from PPG can be viewed at www.ppgideascapes.com.
