Course Description:

  • This program takes a detailed look at the objective criteria set forth in ANSI and ASTM standards that establish the visual, physical, and performance requirements for the various types of tile. The program looks at tile’s aesthetic classifications, its dimensional stability, and other factors that impact the appearance of the finished assembly. It also looks at the physical criteria of strength, water absorption, bond strength, slip resistance, and other physical criteria set forth in the standards.


Tile apprentice instructors will lead participants of a tour of training and demonstration mockups, discussing important aspects of design and installation. View mockups that illustrate critical skill areas of large format tile, grouts, showers, membranes, and gauged porcelain tile.

This program is registered with AIA for a total of 1.5 HSW LUs
