  • Online on Hanley-Wood University, the premier source of continuing education for building professionals.
  • For CRI member manufacturers who have their own learning management systems, CRI can provide all 16 of its CEU courses in a compatible, SCORM-compliant file format suitable for uploading.
  • CRI also offers the following instructor-led continuing education units (CEUs), which have been certified by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Courses in the 700 series have also been certified by USGBC/GBCI. These one-hour courses were developed by the members of CRI.
