The Galvanize It! online seminar was developed by the American Galvanizers Association from the popular in-person seminar presented across North America. The course provides an overview of hot-dip galvanizing, its benefits, the process, life-cycle costs, and specification information.
The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to serving the needs of after-fabrication hot-dip galvanizers, fabricators, architects, engineers, and other specifiers. The AGA provides technical support on today’s innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.
Continuing Education Credit
The AGA is a registered provider with the following agencies. Credit earned upon completion of the course and passing the test (requires 80% or better) will be reported only at your request (by providing your AIA/ACECnumber). This on-demand course is available for 1 hour of HSW credit.

Purpose of the Seminar
The purpose of this seminar is to inform and educate architects, engineers, and other specifiers about hot-dip galvanized steel and how it can address the growing corrosion problem throughout North America.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Recognize the corrosion issues confronting North America
- Describe how zinc coatings, specifically hot-dip galvanizing, can protect against steel corrosion
- Incorporate sound corrosion protection into the design of steel products will significantly decrease maintenance costs over the life of a structure
- Describe how painting over hot-dip galvanizing can prolong service life and provide needed/desired aesthetics
