BIAW Education Program

BIAW's Education Program is an award-winning comprehensive program supporting the needs and requests of BIAW's members. BIAW continues to add new programs, timely seminars and industry workshops on important builder issues such as wetlands, mold, contracts and liability, warranties, and building codes while maintaining support for the professional designation programs. Using an approach tailored to fit the broad scope of our members, BIAW offers industry-specific classes in several categories:

Self Study

BIAW understands the challenge to find the time to attend continuing education courses. This is why BIAW is offering a ground-breaking self-study education option to achieve the Residential Construction Superintendent(RCS) professional designation. RCS consists of eight training modules designed to prepare participants for the role of the on-site superintendent. These modules are typically taught in 4-hour segments but are now offered in a self-study format to allow for maximum flexibility to your schedule. For more information, please contact Amanda Fields

Attendees received valuable information insurance and home owner maintenance.

Low Impact Development

Low Impact Development (LID) is a method for handling stormwater using alternatives to pipes and drains. LID techniques mimic natural site hydrology by using site design and best management practices (BMPs) that retain vegetation, limit impervious surfaces, and infiltrate runoff onsite.
