Newly qualified architectural ironmongery professionals are celebrating their Guild of Architectural Ironmongers education programme results.
Exams were sat in 26 different countries by 390 learners. So far, 101 students have attained the Certificate in Architectural Hardware (CiAH) and 51 students have now completed the GAI Diploma this year.
The Guild’s education programme continues to grow overseas with exams held in three more countries than last year, and 49% of learners based outside the UK. This year there has been a particularly high number of learners in United Arab Emirates (UAE), China and India.
Rachel Tipton, pictured, manager of the GAI education programme, said: “As the only recognised programme in the world that leads to a qualification in architectural ironmongery to British and European standards, the GAI Diploma gives ironmongery professionals all of the skills they need to form a compliant door hardware schedule – skills that will stay with them for their entire career.
“We look forward to celebrating with all of the newly qualified Diploma holders and everyone who has supported them through their qualification will get to celebrate with them at the Education Awards in London on 7 November.”
The 2019/20 education programme prospectus has been published on the GAI website, outlining the qualifications, course content and training support available. It also gives further information on becoming a Registered Architectural Ironmonger (RegAI) through the Continued Professional Development (CPD) programme. The programme offers flexibility for busy professionals and far more opportunity to gain CPD points.?
