    Understanding the Benefits of Non-Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Wall Panels

    Traditional fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels (FRP’s) have been used since the 1960’s as interior wall and ceiling panels. A newer product, non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels, improves on the benefits of FRP’s such as mold, bacteria, moisture, chemical and stain resistance, and is also a sustainable product with fewer health hazards. This course will compare the two products, as well as describe the importance of using non-fiberglass reinforced plastic wall panels to mitigate moisture issues. The course will also cover appropriate applications for the material. Enroll

    Backup Power for Commercial Buildings - Market Drivers, Code Requirements, and Fuel Options for Backup Power

    Power outages in commercial buildings create enormous costs and hardships for business owners, tenants, and employees.

For these reasons, many commercial buildings are incorporating backup power systems — some on a voluntary basis and others based on code requirements. This course explores the motivations for using backup power, relevant code and standard requirements, and the fuel options for backup power generators. Enroll
