Armstrong Flooring is offering a series of online continuing education unit courses in April, making it easy for designers to enhance their knowledge and earn CEUs even when in-person sessions aren’t an option.
The sessions—to be led by Armstrong Flooring Sustainability Manager Amy Costello—are:
- The Six Pillars of Sustainability—Thursday, April 2, 2020, 1 p.m. ET: The course reviews flooring through the environmental and social lens of sustainability and explains how the six pillars relate to the health and well-being of building occupants. It will also cover the intent and requirements of LEED v4, WELL v1, and Building Codes.
- Health, Wellness, & Specifying LVT—Thursday, April 9, 2020, 1 p.m. ET—This course provides insight into specifying luxury vinyl tile that achieves WELL Building Standard Features.
- The Role of Flooring in Room Acoustics—Thursday, April 16, 2020, 1 p.m. ET—The course describes the fundamental properties of sound and how acoustical design impacts indoor environmental quality (IEQ). The role of acoustics in green building rating systems will be described and examples comparing acoustical design criteria in LEED 2009 and LEED v4 will be reviewed.
For each session, participants can earn 1 GBCI Continuing Education Hour (Health, Wellness, and LVT and Six Pillars are WELL Specific), 1 AIA/HSW Learning Unit Credit, and 1 IDEC Continuing Education Unit.
The courses will be led by Amy Costello, a licensed Professional Engineer who holds both a LEED and WELL Accredited Professional certification. She chairs the ASTM Sustainable Manufacturing Sub-Committee and serves on the WELL Material Advisory. Costello is a former member of the Board of Directors for both ASTM International and United States Green Building Council (USGBC), and she was appointed to serve on the U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) Green Building Advisory Committee from 2014-2016.
