Copper Development Association Offers AIA-accredited Introductory Course on Copper

The Copper Development Association (CDA) has received accreditation from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for its introductory course on copper and its unique properties. The course, which covers mining, processing, material properties and typical uses of copper, will earn students one Learning Unit Credit from the AIA.

The course was launched as part of a new informational tool, the Copper Learning Center, that has been developed by the CDA. This virtual classroom provides students and industry professionals easy access to extensive information on copper and its many applications.

CDA has gathered information from industry experts in order to provide the most accurate information on copper usage in industry and manufacturing. The courses will be organized into concise, engaging and affordable modules that can be accessed on-demand. Future courses will be developed specifically for experienced professionals, and will focus on copper applications in building and construction, as well as sustainable energy.

“We feel that the Copper Learning Center will be a great resource for students and industry professionals alike, because it will provide an extensive, mobile-friendly and self-paced learning network,” said CDA Vice President Robert Weed.

“This learning center will continue to grow, and will provide a platform for other educational opportunities, including online webinars and access to a community of experts that can help users develop as professionals,” said Weed. “We are also working toward offering more Continuing Education credits for these courses, and will be constantly evolving the site to add even more resources for our users.”

If your organization would like to enroll multiple employees in the classes, please contact the CDA and they will work with you to establish an organizational discount. You may reach out to Kyle Sexton, Program Coordinator for CDA, at kyle.sexton@copperalliance.us.
