Galvanize It! Online Seminar

Sustainable Development & Hot-Dip Galvanizing

Morris Arboretum

The Sustainable Development & Hot-Dip Galvanizing online Galvanize It! seminar was developed by the American Galvanizers Association from the popular in-person seminar presented across North America. The course provides an overview of the sustainable aspects of hot-dip galvanizing including environmental and economic case study comparisons.

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/PE number). This on-demand course is available for 1 hour of HSW credit.

Purpose of the Seminar

The purpose of this seminar is to educate architects, engineers, and other specifiers about the sustainability of hot-dip galvanized steel by examining both environmental and economic performance. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand sustainability terms and methods
  • Identify environmental costs for hot-dip galvanized steel from production through end-of-life
