This year to improve the quality of your education we are training our new primary points of contacts in their new roles for AIA CES. I want to make sure that you find the resources for Provider Training useful and become familiar with the Provider Manual.
I look forward to a successful year and our ongoing relationship as we continually seek ways to ever improve our educational courses. I will be following up with points of contacts that have not finished or are having trouble finishing up your training within the 90 days allotted.
I would also like to emphasize to please consider us a resource as you finish your training. That being said, I would be more than happy to review your course presentation and any additional materials including course evaluations, certificates of completions templates, and attendance sign-in sheets. When reviewing your course I do not look at content since you are the expert in your field. However I take into consideration that the course is educational in nature and that quality standards outlined in the Provider Manual are maintained.
I am always looking for diversity of educational offerings and what your organization can contribute to the life-long learning experience of our members and allied design professionals. There are always advancements and trends in the design profession, but also in adult learning. I want to explore that in your organization. Quality education is what we all strive for and I want to promote your best practices to our members.
