2022 AIAU Materials Certificate Program

Material selection is a core service provided by architects, but that process is far from simple. The Materials Certificate Program untangles the complexities of that process in five essential courses. The key? Materials transparency. When you know everything you can about the materials you use, you’re able to make the best product decisions for projects, people, and the environment. These courses cover different types of impacts and best practices for reducing these impacts.

Take all five courses and earn a certificate!
