Technical Glass Products Educates Design Professionals with New AIA-registered Fire-rated Glass and Framing Course

Technical Glass Products (TGP) now offers an updated version of its popular AIA-registered fire-rated glass and framing course to help design professionals better understand the role of fire-rated glazing in modern building design.

The new course, "Form, Function and Fire Safety: A Clearer View of Fire-rated Glass and Framing," is eligible for 1.0 Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) learning unit hour in AIA’s Continuing Education System (CES).     The one-hour course addresses the various categories of fire-rated glass and framing, recent fire and life safety code changes, and how to ensure proper product specification.It also explores fire-rated glazing trends, and educates design professionals on how to incorporate fire-rated glazing assemblies into today’s innovative and environmentally conscious designs without compromising aesthetics.

Participants can complete the course in several ways:

  • TGP University®: Live, open webinar
  • TGP InOffice®: In-person or live webinar presentation for qualified firms
  • Online, on-demand: Course is available to participants 24 hours per day through TGP’s AIA Continuing Education page

Qualified firms can access upcoming TGP University webinars or schedule TGP InOffice presentations through TGP’s information request page.

To receive AIA credit, courses that are not completed in a live format require a supplemental test. Test scores of 80 percent or higher qualify participants for 1.0 HSW AIA CES credit. TGP will provide participants who receive a passing score on the test, or who view the program in a live format, with a certificate of completion and will submit their results to AIA for credit. Accredited AIA members must complete a total of 18 Continuing Education Units (CEU) per year to maintain their accreditation, 12 of which must be in the HSW category.
