Webinar Wednesdays are back!
We are pleased to offer our courses online once again. We will repeat some of our popular webinars for those that missed them the first time around, and we’ve also got new courses in the works. This time around we’ve invited industry partners to present as well, so we have even more to offer.
We invite architects, designers, technologists, masons and anyone interested in learning about Arriscraft and our partners. Webinar Wednesdays will allow access to our presentations on a computer, from anywhere in North America. Our courses are AIA accredited, and can also be used towards OAA, ARIDO and ASID learning credits.
