The Wood Structures Academy delves into the innovative design and structural uses of wood materials in residential and commercial applications. It explores environmental and aesthetic benefits, technical advances, code-compliance, as well as the inherent opportunities for using wood in both conventional and unconventional ways. As innovative design solutions become increasingly critical in creating sustainable, cost-effective, modern structures, wood is seeing a new surge in popularity for both its natural beauty and performance qualities.

Upon successful completion of the academy, participants will earn 9.5 AIA LU (6.5 AIA LU/HSW + 3 AIA LU) and a digital badge from Architectural Record recognizing and validating their accomplishment. Each course within the academy is accompanied by a quiz. Complete and pass each quiz to receive your credits, certificate of completion, and digital badge
