Education+ is a serie of virtual presentations available to architects and designers

Education+ presented by
Formica Canada

Education+ is our latest series of accredited and non-accredited virtual presentations available to our entire community of residential and commercial architects, designers and other professionals looking to learn more about our products.

The Formica Group is expanding its continuing education offering!

We've been offering AIA-, IDCEC- and HSW-approved training courses through our accredited experts for many years. Mindful that design and architecture professionals have busy schedules, we're keen to offer presentations adapted to their needs. That's why, starting in May, we're organizing webinars to help you enhance your knowledge.

All you need to do is register to take part. Presentations will include accreditations that we already offer and our new ‘coffee breaks’ presentation. Coffee breaks average 20 to 30 minutes in length and are short talks that focus on trends, new products and other relevant content. They’ll be offered live only and won’t be recorded. However, if the demand for coffee breaks is high, we may increase our offering.

Consult the drop down menu below to see the course and presentation offering and register.

Hard Walls, High Style: Decorative Protection Panels Bring Style, Durability, Resiliency, and Safety to Commercial Settings

Commercial spaces require vertical surfaces that are durable, long-lasting, impact resistant, and stylish. They must have industrial strength, but exude the latest trendy ambiance. Our focus today is on decorative protection panels that take the idea of high-pressure laminates to the next level, replacing the kraft paper core with a durable and resilient fiberglass core. This course explores this next generation of durable wall panels.
