I.  Earn AIA Credits Online through AECDaily

The Brick Industry Association has partnered with AECDaily to offer two new online courses and opportunities for architects to earn Continuing Education credits.  These 1-hour courses provides credits recognized by AIA, GCBI, and many others.

Feb 2016   Brickwork Aesthetics (HSW)
Brick's modular size gives it a level of design flexibility not found with many other materials. This course discusses how brick’s size, shape, texture, color, and position in a wall can be used to create walls with unique appearances. The addition of striking design elements through the use of details such as arches, recessed and projecting courses, brick sculpture, and specially shaped brick is also examined.

II.  Earn AIA Credits Online through the Brick Industry Association


Each year, the Brick Industry Association publishes at least one new educational opportunity to its website that allow architects to earn AIA/CES credits online through our Brick In Architecture series. The content in each issue features multiple unique brick projects and includes a technical article that is tied to a relevant Technical Note. By reading the technical article, architects can then take the ten question quiz online to earn their AIA/CES credits.

You can read each of our Brick In Architecture issues or simply opt to take the online courses from each one.  Currently, BIA has the following technical articles available for credit:

 Dec 2014    Energy-Efficient Brick Masonry Cavity Walls (HSW)  Expires 9/19/20
