...Great job. We are very impressed with your level of understanding the issue and additional research!"
Continuing education is either legally mandated, or a requirement of almost all design professionals. Architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, contractors and other design professionals must take continuing education to maintain their license or certification.
Architects are required to do continuing education in almost every state and province in North America. Those requirements start at a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education per year, and goes as high as 50 hours per year. AIA members are required to complete 18 hours per year. Any architect with a LEED certification has a further requirement of up to 56 hours biennially.
The mandatory nature of continuing education has given building product manufacturers a unique opportunity to educate the professional regarding their products, while at the same time creating a very effective lead generation channel.
In our surveys, 84% of the design professionals indicated that they would be specifying the product after taking a course.
Education is also of great value to the design professional because it helps solve design problems and positions the manufacturer as the authority that can help them.
