The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has introduced “Fundamentals of Fenestration.” The course is designed to train participants in basic terminology and standards for windows, doors and skylights.
The organization said that it will cover residential and light commercial products and commercial and architectural applications. The course is designed to qualify for one hour of continuing educational credit and Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credit from the from the American Institute of Architects. It also qualifies for a credit from the International Code Council.
The AAMA says that the course is geared to experienced professionals, professionals new to the industry and homeowners. The cost is $40 for AAMA members and $80 for non-members.
In January, the AAMA updated its method of determining thermal performance of fenestration systems in commercial buildings. The document – “Standard Practice for Determining the Thermal Performance Characteristics of Fenestration Systems in Commercial Buildings” (AAMA 507-15) — was the first update to the procedures since 2012, according to the organization.
