REHAU was recently named as a continuing education systems registered provider by the American Institute of Architects. The designation lets participants in REHAU’s geothermal ground loop heat exchange and radiant heating courses receive one continuing education learning unit per course in the AIA category of health, safety and welfare. In addition, these courses qualify for one continuing education learning unit earned in the sustainable design category.

Architects are required by AIA to earn 18 continuing education learning units per year, the association says. Of those credits, eight must fall within the category of HSW. As of 2009, AIA also mandates that four of the eight HSW credits must be earned in the category of sustainable design.

Each of the one-hour courses can be conducted onsite at an architecture or engineering firm, or at other training centers located throughout the United States. REHAU also directly files with the AIA for participants’ continuing education learning units and issues certificates of completion upon their successful conclusion of each course.
