The Language of Color Continuing Education Course


Selecting colors that match can be a challenge to design professionals, who will learn in this course, the language of color and a scientific numeric system for color control. Interactive exercises demonstrate the subjectivity of visual color selection and the factors that influence color. When specifying color the design professional will learn the importance of stringent color tolerances on raw materials, color checks at various stages of the manufacturing process as well as uniform numeric standards. By learning the science of color, and the importance of manufacturer controls, the design professional can eliminate costly project errors and meet design objectives.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Define color and the factors that influence the perception of color.
  • Request color quality standards when specifying products from manufacturers
  • Specify colors using scientifically based numeric systems. 
  • Avoid project delays, costs and problems due to color selections.

How to Specifying Resilient Flooring

Specifying the right floor for the appropriate application can be challenging. This presentation was designed to help you compare various resilient flooring options, and to explain how the right flooring choice can solve and prevent common concerns. Flooring has a major impact on productivity and economic returns in a space. Three major areas that contribute to productivity and high performance are considered in this course: safety, efficiency and motivation. Specific practical issues involved in each area are discussed in detail, including the tests and standards that measure performance. Pros and cons of major flooring types are also examined, along with the applications where each type can be best used.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate in detail three key concerns for selecting flooring that contributes to economic return by increasing productivity: safety, efficiency and motivation of building occupants and users.
  • Explain various types of industry testing methods that verify performance in each of these areas.
  • Compare advantages and disadvantages of different types of resilient flooring.
  • Determine which resilient flooring types are best suited to specific applications.
