When it comes to the commercial building products, Firestone Building Products is committed to being your #1 resource for knowledge and support.
Building Products University (BPU) Online Education Program
The Building Products University (BPU) Online Education Program was designed to provide an introduction to various roof, wall and building envelope topics. The courses use interactive learning techniques with audio, text, graphics, animation and videos to present important information and concepts. Each course is available in two versions. One version is to take the course in a generic format that complies with AIA and RCI requirements for continuing education credits. The other version includes a lesson that integrates specific products offered by Firestone Building Products.
Held throughout North America, Building Products University One-Day Workshops build on the fundamental lessons and principles that are presented in the online courses. We take a deeper dive into current issues that impact the way buildings are designed, constructed and maintained. Information is presented in a generic form to ensure that continuing education units can be earned for AIA and RCI certification requirements. These interactive seminars are facilitated by subject matter experts and tailored to participants’ specific needs and include critical topics, such as changing code requirements, best practices warranty coverage and market trends. The format blends classroom activities with open discussion, ensuring all attendees’ needs are addressed, such as geographic considerations, local code requirements and specification concerns.
