AAMA Announces New Aluminum Course January 21, 2009

 The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) announces the creation of a new classroom educational course addressing the versatility of aluminum entitled - The Aluminum Advantage.


The course was developed by the association's Aluminum Material Council Strategic Marketing Task Group, which Keymark participates, and is accredited through the American Institute of Architects (AIA).  This new course details the advantages in using aluminum as a building material, including structural integrity, impact resistance, design flexibility, and sustainability.


The course also features multiple case studies, including buildings that utilize aluminum in order to gain LEED Certification.  With the rise of green construction, aluminum has become more widely used because of it's versatility.  Nearly 65% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use, and aluminum can be recycled over and over again without the loss of physical properties.


In addition to the aluminum course listed above, AAMA offers four online courses and six additional classroom courses as part of the AAMA Continuing Education Licensing Program.  All of these courses are available on the Continuing Education page on the AAMA website:   http://www.aamanet.org   As a free benefit to you, Keymark Representatives are allowed to present to your company or organization, under our AAMA membership, any of these classroom courses that would qualify for credits through the AIA.  If you or your organization are interesed in learning more, please contact Keymark's National Sales Coordinator - Brent Slaton @ 678-378-2208 to learn more.


AAMA is the source of performance standards, product certification, and educational programs for the fenestration industry.
