AIA Presentations

PE offers AIA courses that we would be happy to present to your office. These courses are eligible for continuing education credits.


In Vibration 101, we discuss the basic principles of vibrations in building structures, survey common sources of excitation input energy, connect excitation to dynamic response, define vibration acceptance criteria, and explore mitigation and management techniques targeting occupant comfort and optimal equipment performance.


Post-Tensioned Concrete 101 is an introductory course introducing post-tensioned concrete as an efficient structural building material. We discuss the advantages of unbonded vs bonded post-tensioned concrete, identify general terminology, define general parameters for a post-tensioned concrete building layout, including column sizing and slab thicknesses, and determine the differences between concrete lateral systems.

Conventional wood-framed construction is very popular due to its economic efficiency. In Efficient Design of Wood-Framed Structures, Wood 101, we discuss tips and tricks on how to keep wood-framed projects efficient.

Efficient Design of Multi-Story Load-Bearing Cold-Formed Metal Framed Buildings, CFMF 101 introduces cold-formed metal framing as an efficient building material.

Mass Timber 101 is an introductory course introducing mass timber as an efficient structural building material. We discuss the basics of mass timber products, identify what building elements can be mass timber in each construction type, the major design factors that influence the use of mass timber, cost and availability, and the sustainability benefits of using mass timber.
