Fenzi North America has developed an online continuing education course that is available free of charge to anyone wishing to learn how to properly select IG elements, find out about the ins and outs of each and every component, understand their performance and earn education credits.
The course has been approved by the Architects Institute of America (AIA) and the US Green building Council (USGBC) and offers education credits recognized by numerous other associations for sustainable planning and design.
The high educational content of the course program has been certified by AEC Daily’s On-line Learning Center, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) training institution responsible for promoting the professional development of the construction industry and LEED professionals through high-quality continuing education programs, which today also include Fenzi’s course.

The course provides an overview of the characteristics insulating glass (IG) sealants must offer to ensure long-term thermal performance, structural durability and longevity of insulating glass units.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
• discuss IG units in terms of their role in saving energy, offering thermal performance over a single lite of glass, providing comfort to building occupants while letting in natural light and views of the outdoor environment
• identify the components of an IG unit, and discuss how they contribute to the function of the unit as a whole in energy performance and safety glazing applications
• identify and compare IG sealant types, and determine key differences between primary and secondary seals
• assess the durable and mechanical properties of an IG sealant and select an appropriate product for a specific application to ensure the thermal performance of the IG unit does not diminish over the life span of the building.
