TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Courses taken on AEC Daily's website grew by 41% in 2011 and all indications are pointing to continued growth for 2012. AEC Daily is the North American leader in A/E/C (architecture / engineering / construction) education with 77% of learners coming from the United States and 13% from Canada.
"Last year, we issued hundreds of thousands of learning credits" said Jeff Rice, president of AEC Daily, "and due to the growth in sustainable construction we are also the largest online provider of U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) education for LEED professionals."
Chris Swigert from Perkins+Will said "I want to say how much I appreciate the courses you offer. All of my friends are off at Greenbuild trying to fulfill their credits and I have been diligently working towards my credits everyday right here at my desk. I have found most all of them very informative and interesting." Clearly, architects appreciate the convenience of web-based learning. Plus in these economic times, they also like the cost - free.
AEC Daily is also known for its exceptional commitment to high quality education. That is one of the reasons why they are the only company to have won the American Institute of Architects (AIA) AIA/CES Award for Excellence for Internet Platform Providers.
But it is not just architects. The entire construction design community looks to AEC Daily for their learning needs. Courses are either certified or designed to meet the requirements of dozens of professional organizations. While architects represent the majority of credits earned on AEC Daily, other design professions are growing quickly. Engineers took 93% more courses and interior designers grew by 71% in 2011.
