The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has introduced new educational courses that focus on code requirements, energy efficiency and thermal performance, as well as skylights and daylighting as part of its FenestrationsMasters® program, making it the fourth group of courses the association has released.

“While the coursework up to Group 4 has focused on the performance of finished fenestration products and related components, this is the point in the curriculum where we venture into the use of these products within the construction market,” says Janice Yglesias, AAMA’s association services director. “It’s an aspect of the training that AAMA felt was critical to include in order to truly offer the industry a comprehensive professional certification credential.”

According to a statement, AAMA plans to release a fifth group focusing on installation and field testing/forensic evaluation in May and a sixth group centered around curtainwall systems and storefronts in June.
