AIA Continuing Education

Because brick has been used so frequently for so long, BIA offers architects and designers a variety of courses and learning venues where they can learn about our product. Quick snapshots can be viewed on our YouTube channel

For architects who want a quick overview on a specific topic, BIA has 12 videos on our YouTube channel that are specifically geared towards architects. Lasting up to a minute and a half apiece, they can be accessed from any device with an internet browser at anytime. See the series “Brick Masonry Techniques for Architects” right here.

BIA is also proud to offer extensive Technical Notes on Brick Construction, featuring design, detailing, and construction information based on the latest technical developments in brick masonry. Please feel free to email our engineers with your questions.
