Continuing Education Units (CEU)
Lamvin is committed to staying connected with our reps, customers and constituents. Through our partnership with AEC Daily, we offer continuing education courses that educate about acoustics in different environments. Below are three of the courses that are offered; they can be taken as an online class through AEC Daily or a scheduled webinar with our team.
Sound and Noise Control in Hospitality Facilities
The hospitality industry thrives on positive customer experiences. These experiences are often shared on social media, and reviews of a restaurant or hotel now commonly include the acoustical aspects of the experiences. Hospitality venues must be constructed to the highest standards in order to achieve the necessary level of customer satisfaction; this includes providing a positive acoustic environment for a wide range of situations.
In addition to reviewing the basics of sound, sound movement, and sound measurement, this course details the comprehensive range of applications available to the designer to block unwanted noises, control the acoustics in large venues, and provide complete privacy where it is needed while improving the aesthetic appeal of each space as a result.
Division 9 Finishes: Wall and Ceiling Acoustic Treatments
Good acoustic and aesthetic environments are important to the health, safety, comfort, satisfaction, productivity, and general well-being of all building users. This course outlines the benefits of and methodologies for simultaneously creating both with wall and ceiling acoustic treatments. The highly illustrated course includes detailed descriptions of the many acoustic wall and ceiling treatment options available, as well as sample installations.
Acoustics & The Modern Human: Sound Elements as Part of a Biophilic Design
Rapidly changing trends in our society, such as urbanization and modern lifestyle, have resulted in isolation of humans from our experiences within nature. Early research has shown that psychological effects of biophilic design on noise perception have a significant influence in the well-being and health such as focus, information retention, productivity and creativity.
In this course, we will identify these potential problems and the effects of them; as well as outline different corrective actions to mitigate/lessen the issues.
Acoustics A-Z: Products & Applications for Architectural & Industrial Noise Problems
Unwanted sound can become more than a mere annoyance. Excess noise has been found to increase stress and distraction, reduce learning and productivity, and even lead to hypertension and permanent hearing loss. This course presents an overview of how sound is described and measured and discusses the many industrial and architectural products available to control noise in virtually any environment.
