SIUE?s CLI Approved for AIA Continuing Ed Credits2013-12-06 10:16:34 SIUE.edu
SIUE is pleased to announce that its premier continuing education program for the building industry, the Construction Leadership Institute (CLI), has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as an approved program eligible for continuing education credit.

Registration is in progress for the 2014 session of the CLI scheduled to begin in early January.
The curriculum is designed to develop and hone leadership, as well as effective communications skills. Other segments focus on crucial professional skills such as strategic thinking, networking, negotiation, finance, the creation of construction contracts, insurance and bonding, risk management and conflict management. The instructional team includes building industry professionals and subject matter experts.
?This program builds knowledge and skills that would otherwise take years of experience to develop,? said Sandra Hindelang, co-director of the CLI and director of Executive Education in SIUE?s School of Business.
To register, call Hindelang at (618) 650-2668 or visit siue.edu/business/cli.
