aia continuing education & idcec Keep abreast of the latest storage system design and space planning developments with one of our CES/AIA Continuing Educational Seminar Luncheon programs. Our Continuing Education Seminar Luncheons cover a host of topics. Each topic discusses green building design issues, LEED accreditation, and sustainability trends in storage space planning and design of efficient green building facilities. Continuing Educational Seminar Luncheons are suitable for Architects (AIA), Interior Designers (ASID, IIDA), Facilities Managers (IFMA).

Continuing Education Seminar programs are typically held during the lunch hour, and lunch is provided. Each continuing education luncheon program is approximately one hour long and is worth 1 AIA/CES learning credit. Some of the luncheon programs fall under Sustainable Design and Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credit, which is one of the most difficult credits to obtain. Topics cover green building design, LEED, and sustainability trends for space-saving storage and filing systems, modular casework, and demountable architectural walls.
