Schindler Elevator Corporation announces three courses recently approved for credit from the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES).
Each hour and half-long seminar provides the chance for architects, designers and builders to learn about the latest developments in escalator and other general vertical transportation technology and earn 1.5 Learning Credit Units (LCUs).
- “Escalators for Public Transportation” (ESC001) instructs AIA members on how to choose the right escalator for their public transit requirements.
- “Vertical Transportation - Escalators” (ESC002) focuses on escalator architectural features, mechanical components of escalators and escalator design drawing review.

“The CEU program is an important bridge between our company and the architectural community,” said Michael Landis, vice president, marketing, Schindler Elevator Corporation. “Our goal is to provide a variety of courses filled with interesting, relevant and practical information and to work closely with members of the AIA.”
The Continuing Education System from AIA is designed to offer valuable opportunities for members to maximize their professional skills through effective learning partnerships with companies like Schindler.
