CE|STRONG, a continuing education platform hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper and AN Interior offers AIA-approved courses on an online platform easily accessed from both computers and mobile devices.

The leading interior and exterior product manufacturers lead our courses; ranging from the design and detailing of insulated metal wall panels to the high-performance benefits of laminated glass, amongst many other subjects. All of our courses are approved AIA Learning Units—some count towards HSW credits—and will provide a certificate of completion following the workshop.

AN’s CE|Strong workshops reach practitioners and manufacturers across the continental United States to bring cutting-edge materials and tech solutions to bear on local challenges.

The CEU-accredited workshops are organized thematically, spanning interior applications to building envelopes, and range in duration from one hour to a full day. Expert instructors oversee each workshop, guiding attendees toward a greater understanding of how to balance design aims with efficient material use.

Designing interiors requires an excellent grasp of aesthetics, code, and safety, particularly at a time when health concerns are at their peak. AN’s CE|STRONG Interior workshops will provide participants with the know-how to meet these and other challenges head-on. Over four IDCEC-accredited workshops, experts will lead tutorials on the most recent material strategies and product innovations in the world of interiors, highlighting applications in workplace, kitchen and bath, surfaces, and lighting contexts.
