AIA Courses

Ongoing Trainings for Architects

As an architect, you are required to continue your education and maintain your credentials. Upstate Door is proud to offer American Institute of Architects (AIA)-accredited trainings to help with ongoing education and training required for professional architects.

We recommend our architectural representative meet with you and your firm to offer the most applicable trainings to help you provide every client with the best door solutions. Ultimately, it is our goal to be a resource to you on your current or next project, and the best way to do this is to offer a team-based approach, offering time, advice and solutions at your disposal, while creating and solidifying relationships.

Additionally, we offer levels of training based on knowledge and experience level, allowing us to tailor your training to the needs and understanding of each architect. Architects are always welcome to join in on a plant tour with any dealer, providing a chance to learn more about our products and to see how we can match detail, alignments and variety of options offered.

We currently offer three AIA accredited trainings. Learn more about the different options below.
