ASTM/NIBS/Joint Committee Workshop - Building Science Education in North America
Sheraton Toronto, Toronto, ON – April 6, 2014
The Toronto workshop, co-sponsored by ASTM, NIBS, and the Joint Committee on Building Science Education, will include presentations from invited speakers recognized in Canada and the United States as subject-matter experts in Building Science certification, training, and curriculum development. Topics to be discussed will include an overview of building science education as it currently exists in North America, followed by a critical review of graduate-level curricula currently available in building science and how that curricula can be further developed and refined to more effectively educate architects, engineers, and construction professionals.
The workshop will conclude with a critical review of the ASTM/NIBS Building Enclosure Certification and Training Program currently under development and how that curriculum can be developed to align with curricula at colleges and universities in Canada and the U.S. to satisfy the certification requirements being developed by ASTM and offer a new opportunity for professional development, certification, and career advancement in architecture and engineering. Students, professors, and lecturers in Building Science, as well as practicing architects, engineers, and risk management professionals should attend.
Additional technical information is available from workshop chairman Daniel Lemieux, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates Inc., Fairfax, Va. (phone: 703-641-4601; firstname.lastname@example.org).
