USG Boral has announced a webinar series on acoustics, health and aged care fundamentals in building design and fire rating systems.
The building materials supplier is now offering five continuing professional development (CPD) webinar presentations that are certified by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA). As an official CPD provider of the AIA and member of the AIA Refuel Provider Network, USG Boral created the webinars to support design professionals.
Delivered by industry experts from USG Boral’s architectural services team, the webinars cover acoustics, fire and other elements of the National Construction Code (NCC) that relate to the design of wall and ceiling systems.
Subjects offered include:
- building acoustic fundamentals: sound absorption
- building acoustic fundamentals: sound isolation
- healthcare and aged care fundamentals
- seismic design considerations for non-structural components, and
- specifying fire-rated building systems.
Each webinar is one hour in length and is worth one informal CPD point. On completion of the post-webinar learning outcomes questionnaire, participants can receive one formal CPD point. Participation is free via online registrations on the USG Boral website.
Adam Johnson-Kain, architecture and specifications manager at USG Boral, says, “While there are still limitations with face-to-face meetings, the new CPD webinar presentations offer an opportunity to continue to support the career development of design professionals. As an addition to the webinars, where suitable, USG Boral can also host a CPD for each practice either in-person or remotely.”
