On-demand courses

Courses are hosted and administered by leading educational media partners. Follow the link to quickly register with the hosting site, take the course and quiz, and immediately download a certificate of completion. Architects providing AIA numbers will be registered with AIA CES within 10 days of taking the course. Engineers may download and submit their completed course certificates to their state boards. If you have problems obtaining the certificate or registering with the AIA, contact the media partner associated with the course.


Structural Game Changer


Creative engineering addresses large-scale steel joist and deck challenges, both structural and acoustical.


Multi-Family and Hospitality


Long-span composite floor systems integrated with load-bearing cold-formed steel walls have redefined multi-family and hospitality project design.


Designing Smarter Places of Learning

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

An analysis of roof and floor structural design for learning environments using steel joists and deck.


Digging Deeper into the Design of Joists

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

An intermediate course for engineers addressing code requirements, special design considerations and engineering for cost accountability.

Improving Multi-Story Building Design


A quick, 15-minute intro to today’s long-span composite floor systems. These “thin-slab” floor structures are optimal for multi-story building design and construction.

Multi-Story Systems and Selection Criteria

1.25 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

Gain deep insights into today’s leading long-span composite floor systems. Case studies guide right system specification for optimized project design and construction.

Total Steel Project Performance

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

See the risks of incomplete structural drawings. This course uses real-world scenarios to show how steel joist and deck design collaboration reduces total-project costs.

System-Based Steel Building Solutions

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

This course guides the right joist and deck specification for your project. From selection to finishing options, see how to effectively integrate aesthetics, performance and sustainability.

Intro to Composite Floor Systems

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

Specifying the right composite floor system can reduce structural framing costs and speed construction timelines. Case studies include new construction, adaptive reuse, multi-story and large venues.

Intro to Long-Span Composite Floors

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

Know the distinguishing attributes of long-span composite floor systems and why they are often specified for multi-story projects. Course includes case studies, design standards and specification resources.

Design of Long-Span Composite Slabs

1.0 AIA LU/HSW and 1.0 PDH

An advanced course for engineers wanting detailed design criteria for long-span composite steel deck slabs: Increase available space, enhance structural performance and reduce total-project costs.

Note: Courses hosted and administered may over time be subject to removal or may remain posted for educational purposes but without credit hour testing.
