CEU Accredited - Maximizing Tile Installation with Trim Profiles Duration: ~1.5 hours
Manufacturers produce a variety of beautiful and durable tiles, but the availability of coordinating trim pieces can be limited. This has led to the development of a wide range of trim profiles. This seminar will focus on how trim profiles improve the integrity of tile installations and increase the versatility of tile in various applications, including floors, walls, countertops, and more. At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to: 1. Identify tile trim profiles and understand their basic design and function. 2. Understand how to incorporate trim profiles into specific ceramic tile and dimension stone tile applications, including floors, walls, countertops, and more.

CEU Accredited - Barrier-Free Bathrooms - Accessible Design for the Built Environment Duration: ~1.5 hours
Mandated requirements for accessibility in Canada and demand from an aging population, is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s accessibility compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to accessibility standards for accessible design. This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining compliant for accessibility. This seminar will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

CEU Accredited - The Uncoupling Principle Duration: ~1.5 hours
This seminar will examine the Uncoupling Principle, which is now recognized in the Tile Council of America's 2019 Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation as well as by the Terrazzo Tile & Marble Association of Canada (TTMAC). Review the history behind the Uncoupling Principle and examine the evolution of tile setting techniques, along with the benefits and limitations of each stage of development. The individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system will be discussed and the major implications for tile and stone installations revealed.

CEU Accredited - The Cold Hard Truth About What You're Not Hearing Duration: ~1.5 hours
This seminar will examine the advancement of radiant heat and sound control for today's construction, and how it effects the tile and stone industry. Tile and stone have excellent heat conduction qualities, but not as exceptional for sound abatement. Combining the two can be confusing, and if not properly addressed. could cause failure in the tile or stone floor. However, with proper details and specifications, the combination of in floor heat and sound control could offer a long term, maintenance free flooring assembly that adds great value to a project.

CEU Accredited - Sound Control for Ceramic and Stone Tiled Floors - What You're Not Hearing Duration: ~1.5 hours
Effective sound control is particularly relevant whenever there are multiple units in a building. Installing a tiled floor that meets minimum acceptable standards for sound control is a complex undertaking. There are many approaches and products available on the market, and that may lead to confusion and undesirable results. This seminar serves to highlight the key factors that should be considered when installing a tiled floor where sound control is a consideration.
  1. Identify the components of a floor/ceiling assembly required for effective sound control.
  2. Recognize measures that must be taken to address real world sound control challenges.
  3. Recognize two types of sound control ratings; Sound Transmission Class (STC) & Impact Insulation Class (IIC), and understand their relevance to a flooring assembly. Distinguish between an IIC rating and a delta IIC contribution.
  4. List the characteristics of different sound control materials suitable for use underneath a tiled floor covering.
