Introducing our NEW AIA Approved Course!

We’d like to announce our newest AIA-approved course!

In an effort to provide educational resources to help you Build Better, Benjamin Obdyke has developed another AIA-approved CEU course offering. Please join us as we debut The Wide World of WRBs presented by George Caruso, Product Development Manager, on June 23rd at 12:30 EDT. The second of two AIA-approved courses, this course will help to identify and educate you on best practices and accessories for WRBs. With a lot of choices on the market, we will discuss all the options available, their performance characteristics and how to complete the system with flashing and foam board.

The learning objectives are:

  • Understand the performance characteristics of Water Resistive Barriers
  • Gain the knowledge to select the best WRB option for your particular project
  • Understand how to best integrate peel and stick flashing with housewrap
  • Learn how to properly design a wall with housewrap and exterior foam board

Attendees will earn one health, safety and welfare credit for their completion of the course and is free of charge.
