Continuing Education

At the 2013 AIA Show in Denver, CO, the ASI Group received the Award for Continuing Education at the “Architectural Record – 2013 Advertising Excellence Awards” breakfast.

A very objective category, the award was given because the course provided by the ASI Group had the most CEU tests taken since September 2012. Plus it was also the fastest growing CEU Course at McGraw Hill beating out courses that were posted online for over 18 months (online for just 9 months)!

The course is accessible below.


NEW: ASI Group CEU Course: 
Taking Sustainable Washroom Design Beyond LEED

Optimizing the true overall sustainability of a washroom requires the design professional to evaluate many dimensions of partitions and accessories beyond basic LEED Criteria, including: Other Green Features, Maintainability, Durability, Initial & Total Lifecycle Cost, and Aesthetics.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the design professional will be able to:

  1. Discuss why achieving true sustainability in a washroom requires evaluation of more than just LEED points when specifying partitions and accessories
  2. Explain how the materials specified for washroom partitions and accessories can effect overall washroom sustainability
  3. Talk about the characteristics of the most common materials used, and better understand the tradeoffs in durability, aesthetics, maintenance, user safety and total lifecycle cost
  4. Understand that some widely-held perceptions and assumptions about common washroom materials are misguided

Credits: 1AIA HSW CE Hour & 1 GBCI CE Hour for LEED Professionals by attending this course either online or at an ASI Group Lunch & Learn presentation.
