June 13, 2013 — The American Architectural Manufacturers Association recently released education courses on code requirements, energy efficiency and thermal performance, as well as skylights and daylighting, as part of the association’s FenestrationMasters program. This is the fourth group of FenestrationMasters courses released by AAMA. “While the coursework up to Group 4 has focused on the performance of finished fenestration products and related components, this is the point in the curriculum where we venture into the use of these products within the construction market,” says Janice Yglesias, AAMA's association services director. “It’s an aspect of the training that AAMA felt was critical to include in order to truly offer the industry a comprehensive professional certification credential.”
