Do The Five
A crisis wish:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of us are feeling the tightening of the purse strings and anxiety of the health crisis itself. Our members of the Wire Reinforcement Institute are no different. We wish you and your loved ones the very best during these trying times. In the meantime, working from a distance, we are upgrading our technical resources to better inform member customers and the greater engineering and architectural communities about the construction industry's best-kept secret -- welded wire reinforcement (WWR).
One way we may be able to help you navigate your virtual workload is to help you fulfill some licensing educational requirements. WRI offers two AIA CEU courses, hosted by Hanley Wood University online. The links are below.
We wish you good health and when our economy jumps back after the resolution of this health challenge, you can be assured that we will be here for you.
