Credits: AIA and HSW (1 learning unit)

Description: This course explains how smoke migrates in a multi-story building fire and discusses how building codes have evolved to address this danger and why they mandate smoke containment in specific areas of a structure. Product applications and assemblies designed to meet building code requirements and limit vertical smoke migration via elevator hoistways and lobbies are explained.

Session Two: The Technology of Paints and Coatings by Dean Leschak, CDT, Architect + Design Manager, PPG

Credits: AIA, HSW and IDCEC (1 learning unit)

Description: Ever wonder what makes a good bucket of paint? This program covers the ingredients in paint and goes into detail on the different resin types used in making paint and protective coatings. Participants will have a good understanding of acrylic, vinyl acrylic, alkyd, epoxy, polyurethane, polysiloxane and fluoropolymer resins and where best to use these products. This is an excellent program for those new to paint and coatings and would like to learn how these products work.
