AAMA Releases Courses on Fenestration Product Installation and Field Testing

Schaumburg, Ill. -- The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) released education courses on commercial and residential installation, field testing/forensic evaluation and fenestration anchorage, as part of the association’s FenestrationMasters® program.

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

“FenestrationMasters thus far has provided a broad range of information on assembled products and their requirements then went deeper into the details of components and on to building and energy codes,” says Dean Lewis, AAMA's educational and technical information manager. “Group 5 now takes us to the point of the products’ actual use, covering flashing and sealants for installation, residential and commercial installation, anchorage, field testing and forensic evaluation. While challenging, many candidates will find this to be the most practical, useful and interesting portion of the entire course of study.”

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.

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