NCCA Announces Education Course On Prepainted Metals

Cleveland, OH – The National Coil Coating Association (NCCA) and the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) have released a continuing education course titled, “Creative Building Solutions with Prepainted Metal Panels.” Created in partnership with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architectural Record magazine, the course is  available through Architectural Record’s Continuing Education Center website and its continuing education app.

Prepainted metal, also referred to as coil-coated metal, is commonly used on the exteriors of all types of residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. This course introduces the learner to the manufacturing process for prepainted metal and the difference between it and post-production painted metal.

The course’s learning objectives seek to help the participant to:

1. Understand the process of fabricating prepainted metal for use in building design and construction.
2. Learn how advances in prepainted metal have enhanced its aesthetic options and improved performance of metal building systems.
3. Identify and recognize the broad range of design, performance, and safety aspects of prepainted metal.
4. Assess the functional contributions of prepainted metal related to green and sustainable design including the protection of human health.
5. Specify prepainted metal in a variety of green and conventional buildings and formulate appropriate selections related to specific applications.

AIA members who complete “Creative Building Solutions with Prepainted Metal Panels” are eligible to receive one learning unit credit. The American Institute of Building Design, the International Association for Continuing Education and Training and multiple Canadian architectural associations also offer learning credits for this course.
