SAGE recently launched a new addition to its popular learning seminar series called Daylighting with Electrochromics.The course reviews the principles of daylighting and examines how dynamic window systems work and contribute to building energy savings and daylighting design.
The course is available either through live, instructor-led classes, typically conducted at “lunch & learn” sessions for local AIA chapters and conferences, as well as a new self-paced online course on AEC Daily.
The online version of Daylighting with Electrochromics is approved by the Green Building Certification Institute’s (GBCI) Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) and qualifies for one LEED Continuing Education hour credit. Both the online and live versions of the course qualify for one HSW (health, safety, welfare) and Sustainable Design learning unit hour from the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
“Architects and other AIA members in licensed states with mandatory Continuing Education requirements for license renewal must complete a minimum of 12 learning unit hours of HSW-related training annually,” said Andrew Hulse, SAGE’s vice president of business development. “Daylighting with Electrochromics is an excellent way to help meet CE requirements while also staying up-to-date with the latest glazing technologies.”
On completion of the program participants will be able to:
- summarize the role of daylighting and its challenges for use in sustainable design;
- describe active and passive dynamic glazing systems;
- compare and contrast dynamic window options with respect to energy management;
- understand how electrochromic coatings tint;
- list the four components that make up an electrochromic control system; and
- describe three different methods of electrochromic glazing control and a building user situation applicable to each.
For further information on having SAGE conduct a live course, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please sign up at AEC Daily for the online course.
 The live course qualifies only for the AIA HSW credit. The online version qualifies for all listed CE credits.
