Vitro is offering five online Continuing Education (CE) opportunities in  June. 

Our partners at ICD High Performance Coatings and Walker Glass are each hosting sessions of their CE courses for our Glass Education Insiders to provide you with additional expertise on silicone coatings and acid-etched glass products. Plus, national architect manager Chris Fronsoe will host a special session of Vino with Vitro that compares two curated cabernet sauvignon selections. We hope you’ll join us for one or more events this month, which can help you easily earn AIA LU/HSW credits no matter where you’re working.
