Armstrong is offering three digital CEU courses.

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
