Program Overview:

The informed specification of ceiling systems can contribute to high speech intelligibility, minimal noise, a naturally lit environment, and good air quality. This leads to better behavior and an enhanced learning process. This course demonstrates the importance of ceiling systems to a high-performing school, and therefore to the development of high-performing students, and to the wellbeing of educators and administrators. To improve the performance of schools and students, look up. It could be as simple as that.
