New Natural Stone Countertop CEU Course Available
Natural Stone Institute
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oberlin, OH, September 14, 2021— The Natural Stone Institute is proud to announce that a new CEU course entitled Natural Stone Countertops: Considerations for Kitchen and Bath Applications is credit-approved and ready for presentation.
Natural Stone Countertops offers an overview of several natural stone choices, with a focus on setting consumer expectations for their performance. Knowledge of fabrication, installation, and proper stone care will provide all parties involved with an educated experience when selecting materials. The course also offers examples of natural stone in current and unique designs in order to help audiences feel confident that they can choose a stone to fit both functionality and personality.
Natural Stone Countertops expands on the content of the popular Marble Use in the Kitchen course, which will be available through 2021 but will “sunset” at the end of the year. While Marble Use in the Kitchen has offered invaluable educational opportunities for audiences over the years, survey results concluded that CEU attendees desired more information about additional natural stone possibilities for countertops.
Natural Stone Countertops was developed by volunteer members of the CEU Education Committee and is now available to certified Natural Stone Institute CEU speakers for download and presentation through the CEU Events dashboard. On demand, live in person, and live webinar credit has been approved for AIA, IDCEC, LACES, and NKBA. Anyone interested in learning more about the course is invited to attend a live presentation of the course on Wednesday, October 6 at 11:00am ET.
