Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Pevco, a U.S. manufacturer focused exclusively on pneumatic tube systems for hospitals, today announced that it has been approved as a course provider for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES).
CES Approved Providers are organizations that have been approved by AIA’s leadership to provide continuing education to AIA members. Architect members are required to complete the continuing education requirement of 18 learning units (hours of continuing education) annually. Approved Providers include architectural firms and key stakeholders, such as product manufacturers, associations, government agencies, and universities.
Pevco’s course, titled “Healthcare Pneumatic Tube Systems,” is considered intermediate and counts as one learning unit. AIA members who complete the course will learn how to:
- Perform an ROI analysis for pneumatic tube systems
- Determine strengths and weaknesses of various routing technologies
- Understand infrastructure requirements for tube system installation
- Demonstrate best practices in system design
- Understand best practices in the delivery of high-value medical items
According to the AIA website, the CES mission is to support members in mastering new knowledge and skills to meet the changing requirements of the profession and to responsibly meet the role society entrusts to architects. AIA supports its continuing education mission through CES Approved Providers, who are required to consistently deliver quality education courses for architects.
“Architects play a vital role in the design and development of new hospitals and the expansion of existing facilities,” said James Valerino, Pevco’s director of business development. “As such, we are thrilled to have an opportunity to build relationships with these influential professionals through the AIA/CES Approved Provider program.”
Pevco designs, manufactures, installs and supports hospital pneumatic tube systems that enable healthcare professionals to quickly, safely and reliably transport patient-critical materials between labs, pharmacies, blood banks, ORs, EDs and nursing stations.
Used by more than 600 leading hospitals, Pevco’s flexible, intelligent products consistently reduce operating costs and are compatible with all competing pneumatic tube systems. Pevco was founded in 1978 and is headquartered in Baltimore, with support staff positioned throughout North America. To learn more, visit http://www.pevco.com.
