Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Mapei Americas has opened a free online educational program for architects in the United States and Canada. The Architectural Educational Program enables architects to gain continuing education units that are recognized by their associations including American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC).
The program is easily accessible via the Architectural Solutions page of the Mapei Americas websites (mapei.us and mapei.ca). Once architects have entered the portal, they can select and view the online presentation that meets their interests. After completing the accompanying multiple-choice questions, the architect receives an email confirming completion of the course. In the United States, the required information is sent directly to the AIA while architects in Canada self-report their information to the AIBC.
“Mapei has developed an architectural support program that strives to develop a relationship with architects and designers through educational presentations that keep them up to date on the changes and new technology in the flooring industry,” said Mike Granatowski, national manager for architectural and commercial projects at Mapei.
