WAUSAU, WI – Supporting architects and design professionals, "Learn with Linetec" is a new, online, on-demand continuing education platform from Linetec, Wausau, Wisconsin. The first available course is "Architectural Coatings: Weathering, performance and application of high-performance coatings." Because it is an approved American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Series (AIA/CES) provider, those who successfully complete Linetec's one-hour, self-guided course can earn 1.0 Learning Unit for Health/Safety/Welfare (1.0 LU HSW).

The "Architectural Coatings" course provides architects, architectural specifiers and others with the knowledge necessary to understand:

  • The anodizing process, specifications and performance;
  • The paint process, specifications and performance; and
  • The powder coat process.

The course concludes with a comparison of all coating types.

To take the course, visit Learn with Linetec and complete the registration form. A profile will be automatically generated for registered users to immediately begin learning. The video format allows users to pause and progress through sequential lessons and then take a brief quiz after completing the coursework. Upon passing, users will automatically have the opportunity to download a completion certificate. If AIA/CES credit is requested, Linetec will process the submission.

Linetec's course presenter and North Central Sales Manager, Tony Pupp, has more than 25 years of experience in high-performance paint and anodize finishing. He frequently presents Linetec's AIA/CES programs at chapter events for the AIA, the Association of Licensed Architects (ALA), the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
