AAMA Releases Courses on Codes and Energy

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) recently released education courses on code requirements, energy efficiency and thermal performance, as well as skylights and daylighting, as part of the association’s FenestrationMasters® program.

This is the fourth group of FenestrationMasters courses released by AAMA.   

“While the coursework up to Group 4 has focused on the performance of finished fenestration products and related components, this is the point in the curriculum where we venture into the use of these products within the construction market,” says Janice Yglesias, AAMA Association Services Director. “It’s an aspect of the training that AAMA felt was critical to include in order to truly offer the industry a comprehensive professional certification credential.”

Group 1 courses cover product types and design considerations, window, door and skylight performance standards, proper glass selection and specialty performance considerations (blast, impact, tornado and acoustics). Group 2 courses cover profile performance and material considerations, as well as coatings and finishes. Group 3 courses cover hardware, weatherstrip and weatherseals, as well as sealants and adhesives used during factory fabrication.

AAMA is planning to release Group 5 (installation and field testing/forensic evaluation) in May and Group 6 (curtain wall systems and storefronts) in June. For a full course listing, visit www.aamanet.org/fenestrationmasters.
