SDI Develops First AIA-registered Course Extends Technical Expertise to Professional Education

October 3, 2011 WESTLAKE, Ohio – In response to increasing demand from architects for professional education, the Steel Door Institute has developed its first AIA-registered course.

Jeff Wherry, Managing Director of SDI, said, “The Steel Door Institute has been developing and updating standards for steel doors and frames for more than 50 years. We see our entry into providing free education as another service that we can offer architects, specifiers, and others in the construction industry.”

Wherry continued, “Providing professional education in person at architectural firms and at association meetings is an excellent way for our member companies to personally interact with the community.”

The class, Steel: Green Now, Green Forever, focuses on the production and recyclability of steel in the construction industry, including information on upcoming changes to the International Green Construction Code (IGCC). Class attendees earn one AIA/CES LU HSW/SD hour.
