Guardian Industries has added to its available educational programmes, giving architects more options to earn learning credits through their American Institute of Architects (AIA) membership.

Guardian produces educational programmes for the AIA so as to inform architects about the role of high performance glass in commercial buildings.

The recent additions consist of new and updated learning programmes, and a course on The Architect’s Newspaper’s app.

In conjunction with longtime partner Architectural Record/BNP Media, Guardian now offers a ‘Daylighting Design Update’.

This presentation discusses the benefits of natural daylighting in respect to indoor living quality for occupants and the energy optimisation of the building.

It uses case studies to highlight daylighting components of LEED v4 and includes trends in glass and glazing design, visual and performance options.

Secondly, Guardian has updated its ‘Evolution of Glass and High Performance Coatings’ CEU, adding new videos and visuals to describe the basics of glass and the manufacturing process.

Finally, Guardian is part of The Architect’s Newspaper’s new continuing education app, CE|Strong.

These easy-access courses are designed to allow architects to learn ‘anytime, anywhere’, and Guardian’s ‘Principles of Glass Selection for Facades’ is one of the app’s inaugural courses.

These programmes and more are available on the Guardian SunGuard AIA/CES webpage.
