The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) is pleased to announce that its continuing education course, “Sustainable Metal Buildings,” was recently recognized by Architectural Record magazine for being the fastest-moving CEU course of 2018. An award for this achievement was given at the annual Advertising Excellence Awards held on June 7 in Las Vegas, presented in conjunction with the AIA Conference on Architecture.
“Earning this award from Architectural Record is a great indicator that MBMA is the educational leader in the metal building systems industry,” says Tony Bouquot, MBMA’s general manager. “The popularity of the course also shows the growing importance of both metal buildings and sustainability in the world of architecture, engineering and construction.”
Each year, Architectural Record recognizes the most effective ads and continuing education articles and interactive courses in the building and design marketplace, as well as the companies and agencies that produce them. The top continuing education articles and interactive presentation courses were utilized by thousands of test takers—a quantifiable measurement of user engagement that is part of the more than 200,000 tests taken over the past year in the pages of Architectural Record and online at the magazine’s Continuing Education Center.
MBMA’s “Sustainable Metal Buildings” course, available at Architectural Record’s Continuing Education Center, introduces readers to the fundamentals of metal buildings and the principles of green building design. It also highlights the sustainable aspects of metal buildings and compares them with other building types. It went live in December 2018 and received more test takers in its first month than any other continuing education course launched last year.
