Zurn Launches Two Water Safety, Sanitation CEU Courses

A total of six courses are now available on the Continuing Architect

Zurn Industries Water Safety and Sanitation Continuing Education Courses

Zurn Industries LLC launched two new continuing education (CEU) courses for architects that address water safety and sanitation — bringing the total roster of recent Zurn learning units to six.

Both new CEUs are available in streaming HD video via the Continuing Architect (TCA). They are a part of a series of eight courses scheduled for release on TCA by the end of 2014.

The two new Zurn courses are:

  • “Potable Water Safety Through Backflow Prevention,” which outlines the various options to prevent backflow contamination caused by backsiphonage or backpressure. Only 1% of the world’s water supply is potable and in liquid form (as opposed to frozen water trapped in glaciers and polar caps); and
  • “Creating a Sanitary Water Environment,” which explains how sanitation can be achieved at the beginning of a building’s life through the building’s design. When a building’s water system is viewed holistically, it becomes apparent that there are many possible points of contamination that can be avoided through design considerations.

The Zurn CEUs launched thus far are:

Successful completion of each course qualifies an architect for one CES HSW LU credit with the American Institute of Architects.
