Continuing Education Programs

Architectural Glass Boot Camp

Designed to expose rising architects and specifiers in the LA/OC region to the craft of a glazier through interactive instruction and hands-on application.

Architectural Glass Boot Camp is an interactive instructional program developed specifically for AIA members and specifiers. Boot Camp reinforces the importance of collaboration and communication in design by providing an opportunity for emerging design professionals to interface with apprentice glaziers and enhances the educational experience by providing a forum for the exchange of information between these otherwise fragmented groups about complex construction issues.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Deveney Pula.
