Register for Our AIA Approved CEU Live Webinar

Here at Benjamin Obdyke we are committed to providing educational resources to help you “Build Better”. In keeping with that philosophy, we are proud to announce that we are offering an AIA Approved CEU live webinar focused on moisture-managed wall systems. The course Drainage & Drying in the Exterior Wall will be presented by George Caruso, Product Development Manager, on July 15th at 1 p.m.

Attendees will earn one health, safety and welfare credit for their completion of the course and is free of charge. The learning objectives included in the course are: recognizing the integral role of a gap within the exterior wall, understanding the performance characteristics of drainable housewrap and rainscreens, understanding the selection criteria to consider when designing for moisture management in wall systems and determine the appropriate ways to employ draining and drying principles for a variety of cladding systems.

This will be the first of several online courses provided so please stay tuned for more things to come! We look forward to “seeing” you July 15th!
