The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has introduced a new offering from the association’s education program. Fundamentals of Fenestration provides basic terminology and standards for doors, windows and skylights, covering both residential and light commercial products, as well as commercial and architectural applications. The online course is designed for several audiences, and it also qualifies for continuing-education credits.

The course serves as an introduction to the FenestrationMasters program, especially for the associate level. Candidates will learn a basic working vocabulary and become familiar with functions and requirements of fenestration products.

Industry veterans can learn specific terminology used in AAMA educational courses to avoid confusion among differences in how some terms may be used.

The information in this course also may be useful to consumers in the selection and purchase of doors, windows and skylights in order to improve basic working knowledge of these products.

Upon successful completion of this course, one hour of continuing-education credit can be earned for both the American Institute of Architects (the course also qualifies for Health Safety Welfare credit) and the International Code Council.

Fundamentals of Fenestration can be purchased from the AAMA online store. Three-month unlimited access to the course costs $40 for AAMA members and $80 for non-members. Customers will receive a downloadable link to the course within two to three business days of placing an order.
