Want to Earn AIA HSW/LU CE or GBCI for LEED Professionals Credits AND Learn About How Hand Dryers Impact Sustainability? Here’s Your Chance!

    By Dan Storto, President, World Dryer Corporation

    When I was growing up, no words sounded sweeter to my ears than, “School’s out for summer!” As an adult, however, we know learning never stops. For architects who are members of The American Institute of Architects (AIA), I don’t have to tell you that school is never really out. Taking AIA approved courses to earn continuing education credits is a continual requirement. This statement is also true for LEED professionals looking to earn GBCI credit hours. It is important to keep on top of your industry.

    If you’re an architect or design professional and improving your sustainability efforts is an important goal, I have just the course to recommend. Not only will you earn these important credits, you’ll also get a first-hand look at how today’s high-speed hand dryers minimize impacts on the environment while also providing a top-notch user experience.

    I invite you to check out our World Dryer-sponsored webinar “Innovations in Hand Dryers: Improvements and Impacts on Sustainability” available on GreenCE.

    In this one-hour course, we’ll take you on a journey examining the evolution of electric hand dryers and show you how far today’s high-speed, energy efficient dryers have come in terms of providing a speedy and efficient user experience with lower operation and maintenance costs. We’ll also explore an array of innovative high-speed hand dryer features, including HEPA filtration, antimicrobial technology, ADA compliance, maintenance indicators and sound and speed controls, which address the unique needs of various application environments. Finally, you’ll get a glimpse into how specifying high-speed, energy efficient hand dryers contributes to green initiatives.

    Here are 6 things you can expect to take away by the end of the hour:

    1. The innovations of hand dryers on the market today and how new technology has improved the hand drying experience
    2. How dryer speed and heating elements affect drying time, sound level and energy efficiency
    3. The design and installation requirements for ADA and wall mounting
    4. Understanding the sustainability of hand drying methods regarding hygiene and environmental impacts
    5. The benefits of hand drying in terms of cost, payback and ROI
    6. Green building contributions of high-speed hand dryers and which LEED credits they may earn

    Our next course is coming up on October 25 at 1 pm EST. If you can’t make it, don’t worry because we’ll still have another course on December 19. And at World Dryer, we’re happy to partner with you as you look for new and innovative ways to improve your sustainability efforts.
