USG Boral has created five new continuing professional development (CPD) webinar presentations certified by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA). As an official CPD provider of the AIA and member of the AIA Refuel Provider Network, USG Boral created the webinars to support design professionals.

The webinars cover acoustics, fire, and other elements of the National Construction Code (NCC) that relate to the design of wall and ceiling systems. Subjects offered include:

  • Building acoustic fundamentals: sound absorption
  • Building acoustic fundamentals: sound isolation
  • Healthcare and aged care fundamentals
  • Seismic design considerations for non-structural components
  • Specifying fire-rated building systems

Delivered by industry experts from USG Boral’s architectural services team, each hour-long webinar is worth one informal CPD point. On completion of the post-webinar learning outcomes questionnaire, participants can receive one formal CPD point. Participation is free via online registrations on the USG Boral website.

Adam Johnson-Kaine, architecture and specifications manager, USG Boral, said, “While there are still restrictions on face-to-face meetings, the new CPD webinar presentations offer an opportunity to continue to support the career development of design professionals. As an addition to the webinars, where suitable, USG Boral can also host a CPD for each practice either in-person or remotely.”
