As a design professional, you may know Ron Blank & Associates, Inc. through the free continuing education courses we have offered since 2000, when AIA continuing education began. What you may not know is that RBA has also been educating design professionals through one-on-one meetings in architecture firms all across the U.S. since 1985. We have a team of specification consultants that travel nearly thirty weeks per year to the fifty largest metro areas in the U.S. These consultants have backgrounds in the A&E profession and bring valuable information about new and exciting building product technologies to design professionals to keep them informed about best practices and changing trends in the building products industry. Our consultants are not manufacturer reps and are not paid on commission and are certainly never paid by you, the design professional. On each visit they make to a particular firm, about every 8-12 months, they bring to the design professional the following:

  A short presentation about six to ten different building product technologies
  A brief synopsis of each product with a website reference for you to keep
  A list of all available lunch-and-learn programs from various sponsors
  A newsletter that has a calendar of our CE Academy dates across the U.S.
  A reference of our online continuing education courses
After our presentation, we will report back to our manufacturer clients only what you have requested from them; this may include:
  1. A lunch-and-learn AIA course given at your firm
  2. Product binder or brochure for your reference
  3. Product samples
  4. Digital information, such as a web link or specification files and CAD/BIM details
  5. An office visit by local representative
  6. Contact from a technical advisor about the particulars of a product
Once again, these items are strictly delivered to you upon request only. In addition, being that many of us come from the design profession ourselves, we know how valuable your time is and will call to make an appointment with you at your request and discuss the key points that you are interested in. This program succeeds because we adhere to our mission of bringing quality information to design professionals in a concise, educational and efficient manner, while helping to build productive and collaborative relationships between design professionals and building product manufacturers.
For more information about this program, please call 800-248-6364.
