ROCKFON offers AIA/CES course on Optimizing Acoustics

Supporting your professional development and ever-growing knowledge of acoustic design, we are happy to share our newest continuing education course, “Optimizing Acoustics for Effective Sound Design and Performance.”

Now available in Architectural Record magazine’s Oct. 2016 issue to subscribers, it also is accessible to all design professionals at no cost in the online continuing education center.

COURSE SUMMARY

“Optimizing Acoustics for Effective Sound Design and Performance” offers course participants a greater understanding of how ceiling panels with high Noise Reduction Coefficient ratings (NRC) provide high-performance, sound-absorption solutions that maximize building occupants’ well-being and comply with current building standards.

    

This includes learning how to:

  1. Assess the impact of noise on physiology, comfort, health, mental capacity, behavior and productivity.
  2. List and describe the myths and truths in the design world as they relate to acoustic building practices.
  3. Recognize how ceiling panels with high NRC ratings, such as ROCKFON stone wool ceiling panels, can lead to compliance with the building standards, guidelines and rating systems from multiple perspectives.
  4. Explain the mechanics of optimized acoustics and differentiate between optimizing absorption and optimizing blocking using modular, suspended, acoustic ceilings and other architectural components.

LEARNING UNIT

Approved by the American Institute of Architects’ Continuing Education System (AIA/CES), those who complete the course will earn one Learning Unit in Health, Safety and Welfare (1.0 LU HSW). To learn more about ROCKFON ceiling systems and how they contribute to optimizing acoustics for effective sound design and performance, please visit OptimizedAcoustics.com.
