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.

Workshops

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.

Conferences

For more than a decade, AN has successfully programmed hundreds of live conferences, connecting thousands of leading professionals in the process. Unmatched in their depth of knowledge and scope of engagement, these events aggregate expert panels, workshops, and product expos, not to mention networking opportunities. And in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, AN has seamlessly pivoted its signature Facades+ and Tech+ series online, while also expanding its offerings. New to this conference roster is Mass Timber, which already promises to be a tentpole industry event as the material gains wider application in the years ahead.
