Following nine months of extensive work, a MIA CEU subcommittee (chaired by MIA Past President Scott Lardner, Rocky Mountain Stone) introduced a new CEU course on Natural Stone Thin Veneer. This one-hour class is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of a relatively new application (thin veneer) of a product (natural stone). Explore natural stone's beauty and durability on structures from around the world. Learn the history and best uses for different types of stone veneer, how thin stone is produced, and common application techniques and opportunities. This course is part one of a two-part natural stone thin veneer series.
Learning Objectives include:
1. Explore the history and best uses for different types of veneer.
2. Learn how natural stone thin veneer is made and what product variations are available.
3. Discover the advantages over anchored veneer and manufactured stone.
4. Learn about application techniques and opportunities.
This course is approved by AIA, ASID, IDC, IDCEC, IIDA, and ASLA.
Lardner commented, "it was a great collaberative effort with nine prominent companies involved. This CEU is the sixth class introduced by the MIA to expand the educational opportunities available to the design community about natural stone."
In 2011 the MIA provided over 140 CEU classes across the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia. To learn more, go online to: www.marble-institute.com/ceu
