Insights into Continuing Education on the Whole Building Design Guide

    By Stephanie Vierra, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C and Richard Paradis, PE, BSCP, Bd. Cert. NCE

    In September, AIA CES invited Richard Paradis of the National Institute of Building Sciences to share his experiences as a Provider with the Continuing Education System. We were looking for an alternative medium to capture Provider best practices and recording a podcast proved to be a good place to start. This month, we are featuring a follow-up article to the Developing Distance Education for Architects podcast which will explore new content and continuing education courses produced by NIBS.

    What is the Whole Building Design Guide?

    A unique web portal, the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) is intended to promote high-performance design through technical criteria, design guidance, case studies, and continuing education, and many other sources of information.

How do we Increase the Value of your Continuing Education Program?

By Ramiro Solórzano, Assoc. AIA
Manager, CES Provider Audits

    Maintaining the quality of education is a direct way of increasing the value of your continuing education program. While working with all our Providers, I have the pleasure of being an active participant in upholding the quality of education we offer to our members. We are constantly looking at how we bring value and quality of education to our members.
