FabriTec Structures announced the company has partnered with Architectural Record and BNP Media to certify, host, and distribute the company’s AIA Continuing Education course Anatomy of a Tension Structure. The continuing education course provides architects with 1 LU (learning unit) upon successful completion.
The company’s Anatomy of a Tension Structure course teaches viewers about tensile membrane structures from conceptual design through to final construction. The course covers general fabric structure forms, membrane types, concept development and analysis, material takeoff, design analysis, pricing, design considerations, engineering, steel fabrication, membrane fabrication, installation, and several project case studies. The continuing education course is available through BNP Media’s website at https://continuingeducation.bnpmedia.com/courses/fabritec-structures/anatomy-of-a-tension-structure-1/
Licensed architects are required to earn 18 continuing education credits, or Learning Units (LU), each year to fulfill AIA membership requirements. The FabriTec Structures CEU course helps architects work towards earning the credits they need while learning about the tensile membrane structure industry.
