You will also be able to earn 1 hour of IDCEC HSW CEU credit if you attend live; this also satisfies LEED AP or WELL AP general education requirements. We will collect your IDCEC information by form on the webinar day at the end of the presentation.
If you do not have an IDCEC number, you will still fill out the form to verify your attendance, but you will self-report the CEU using the course code shown during the presentation.
**NOTE: There will be no replay, so you must show up live.
The course explains Why Standards Matter for everyone involved with furniture procurement to ensure decisions consider health, safety, wellness, and sustainability.
In this course, you’ll learn about the historical context that drove the need for developing industry-wide furniture performance standards and understand the impact of social, economic, and technological trends on the bottom line for business owners.
You’ll learn how testing procedures simulate the actual use of furniture over the product life cycle. You will also learn how to access LEVEL and BIFMA Compliant as tools to evaluate your furniture selections.
