Let Fundamentals of Fenestration Serve as a Building Block
Last fall, FGIA released a revamped introductory educational program, now available as a more dynamic and engaging online course. Fundamentals of Fenestration provides basic terminology and performance criteria for windows, doors and skylights, covering both residential and light commercial products, as well as commercial and architectural applications. The program serves as an excellent building block for those new to the industry. Including Fundamentals of Fenestration as a part of your training for new employees will set them up for success.
Companies looking for an introduction to the fenestration industry won’t find more relevant content than the Fundamentals of Fenestration. This course would be especially helpful as part of a company’s onboarding and training program for inside sales reps, customer service teams and anyone new to the industry that needs a basic understanding of fenestration products.
The goal of Fundamentals of Fenestration is to help participants construct a basic working knowledge of the industry. Those who complete the program will be able to identify fenestration products, recognize basic terminology, discuss material types used for manufacturing and installation and describe the basics of performance, testing and certification.
The course is designed for use by multiple audiences including manufacturers, contractors, engineers, consultants and testing companies and covers a broad scope, representing nearly the full breadth of products commonly used in the fenestration industry. It provides the fundamental building blocks of various market segments and teaches basic terminology so participants understand how to discuss and describe products and components.
This two-hour introductory program provides basic terminology and information about windows, doors and skylights, covering both residential and commercial applications. The online course also qualifies for AIA and ICC continuing education credits.
