CBC Flooring is now offering an AIA- and USGBC-certified continuing education unit course on the benefits of polyolefin and PVC/halogen-free flooring for architects, designers and specifiers.

The one-hour course has been presented to more than 600 professionals in the A&D community this year alone in markets across the U.S., and is the first of several planned courses CBC Flooring will present.

"We are delighted to be offering this course to help those who specify flooring products learn more about this ever-changing technology. Solid and relevant data presented in the course allows them to make an informed decision," said Chip Braulick, sr. marketing mgr. for CBC Flooring.

The course covers the raw materials, composition and properties of polyolefin; the benefits of halogen- and PVC-free flooring; and associated environmental benefits.

Danika R.S. Dallam, vp design for SAAarchitects in York, Pa., arranged to have the course presented at this summer for seven members of her staff. "We found it extremely beneficial," she said. "Technology and products are changing so rapidly, we can't keep up. With CBC's course, our whole office could learn about it all at once."
