SAFTI FIRST®’s Continuing Education Program “Designing with Fire Rated Glass” is Now Available On-Demand

Architects can receive 1 AIA LU/HSW and learn about fire rated glazing code requirements – anytime, anywhere

BRISBANE, CA (February 7, 2017) – SAFTI FIRST®, leading USA-manufacturer of advanced fire rated glass and framing systems, is pleased to announce that its AIA-registered continuing education program “Designing with Fire Rated Glass” (1 AIA LU/HSW) is now available in a convenient on-demand video program that architects can take anytime, anywhere through its website, This program empowers architects to choose the correct and code approved fire rated glazing product for every application based on current code and testing requirements, as well as learn how today’s advanced fire rated glazing products enhance a building’s overall design and performance.

“We’ve had a lot of success delivering our educational programs through face-to-face presentations and live webinars,” says William O’Keeffe, President and CEO of SAFTI FIRST®. “However, we realize that many of today’s architects are busy, and may not have the time to attend a pre-scheduled presentation. Having an engaging, professionally produced, on-demand video program is a great way for them to get the education that they need at a time that is most convenient to them.”

Hosted by Tim Nass, VP of National Sales at SAFTI FIRST®, the program includes various safety and fire testing videos, animated charts and other high-impact visuals designed to sustain the viewer’s interest and help them retain valuable information.
