Armstrong is offering three digital CEU courses.

Lancaster, Pa.—Armstrong Flooring is offering a series of online continuing education unit courses in April to make it easy for designers to enhance their knowledge and earn CEUs even when in-person sessions aren’t an option.

The six pillars of sustainability – Thursday, April 2, 2020, 1 p.m. EST
The course reviews flooring through the environmental and social lens of sustainability and explains how the six pillars relate to the health and wellbeing of building occupants. It will also cover the intent and requirements of LEED v4, WELL v1 and Building Codes.

Health, wellness & specifying LVT – Thursday, April 9, 2020, 1 p.m. EST
