DUBAI, UAE, January 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Institute of Architects (AIA) is dedicated to playing an active role in the continuing education of its members through it's Continuing Education System (CES). The aim is to provide valued opportunities for AIA members to maximise their professional skills through effective learning partnerships with firms and continuing education providers. Only CES providers can offer professional learning units, the hallmark of quality in continuing education and training.
One such CES provider is Green Builders, a licensee of AFM. AFM Corporation is a technology and marketing licensing company that licenses expanded polystyrene foam and structural insulated panel manufacturers throughout the US and the world. In a recent interview, General Manager of Green Builders, Mohammed Nasrelin commented that 'AFM have been delivering AIA Accreditation Points for over 10 years now and it is a real pleasure to be involved in the delivery of continued learning for design and construction professionals. Not only do our sessions serve a purpose in facilitating professional development but we also provide insight into the latest developments in sustainable and maintainable solutions for the industry.'
Green Builders deliver 1-2 hour accredited sessions on structural insulated panels (SIPs), expanded polystyrene, lightweight sight and sound barrier solutions and expanded polystyrene geofoam. Their ground-breaking session on SIPs addresses just how these structural insulated panels contribute towards green building and environmental conservation, provides an understanding of the basics of SIPS technology and explores expected green, time efficient and economic benefits of using SIPS in the MENA region
IQPC's Cost-Effective Sustainable Design construction Egypt will provide a dedicated session for Mohammed Nasreldin to deliver an hour long accredited presentation on SIPs, resulting in all attendees receiving 8 CES points from the AIA.
