AAMA Releases Courses on Curtain Wall and Storefront Design, Energy

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) released education courses on curtain wall design, aluminum storefronts and entrances, as well as energy and the architectural fenestration industry, as part of the association’s FenestrationMasters® program.

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

“Because of the complexity of the topics and their specificity to the commercial market, the courses in Group 6 are exclusively required of FenestrationMaster™ students,” says Angela Dickson, AAMA's marketing manager. “As this group represents the final courses in the program, AAMA is very excited to have the entire curriculum available to students, with the certification exam launching at the beginning of July.”

* 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.

* Group 4 courses cover code requirements, energy efficiency and thermal performance, as well as skylights and daylighting.

* Group 5 courses cover commercial and residential installation, as well as field testing/forensic evaluation and fenestration anchorage.

“FenestrationMasters is truly unique in that it is the only publicly available professional education and certification program concentrated on the fenestration industry. Due to AAMA’s material and product neutrality, as well as our long history of technical expertise, students will learn from an unbiased, industry-leading source,” says Dickson.
