Learning Objectives
At the end of this training series you will have learned the following:

The Curriculum:

The presentations cover commercial glazing terminology, how various window and wall systems can be assembled using the numerous products available, how they may or may not make contact with one another in these systems, and whether the products used are compatible. It is not our intention to promote a particular window or wall system over another or suggest that one type of glazing system depicted is better than another. Each system shown in the following presentations has been used successfully and will perform as intended based on the characteristics of the product(s) used. There are advantages and disadvantages to each glazing system, and it is up to the window and/or wall manufacturer to determine which product or products will best meet their performance requirements, whether installation occurs in the shop or on site.

Class Format:

Review the course materials anywhere you have access to the Internet. Proceed through the classes on your own schedule. Course materials consist of three self-paced chapters followed by self-administered tests with multiple choice questions. The three chapters will take approximately one-and-a-half to two hours total to complete.


The Architectural Education Series is made up of three chapters:

Chapter 1: Glazing Terminology & Types of Glazing Systems

Chapter 2: Dry Glazing Terminology & Systems

Chapter 3: Structural Glazing Systems & Terminology

Testing and Accreditation:

Each chapter in the series has an associated multiple-choice test. Click on the link below to register, then complete each test at your convenience and in any order you wish. From the tests you may review the relevant information within each chapter, view results and change your incorrect answers, then submit your test when you are satisfied with the score.
