A new sustainability-focused CEU course is now available for lunch and learn presentations. The Understanding Vinyl course has been updated and is now available on Marcom to download the speaker notes, presentation and sign-in sheets.
This CEU will provide an explanation on vinyl manufacturing products and end of life opportunities. The presentation will evaluate the sustainable attributes of vinyl products from a life cycle perspective. It will also address vinyl misconception and introduce new opportunities for raw materials and recycling.

Tarkett is dedicated to providing continuing education content that is relevant and applicable to the end-user, architect and design community we work with every day. To date, there are 16 continuing education (CEU) courses registered through The American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
There are several guidelines that must be followed in order for Tarkett to become and stay an accredited CEU provider with all of the organizations listed above.
- All courses must be one hour in length, and each course that is presented, must be presented in the way it was submitted to each organization. Speaker notes are given for each course as well and those should be available in each folder on Marcom and on SalesForce.
- These courses should not include any Tarkett, Johnsonite or Tandus Centiva products. Tarkett can lose its accreditation with each of these organizations if we’re found to be in violation of this rule. All of our current courses are undergoing a thorough review and will be updated and resubmitted if there is product mention in them.
After a course is completed, sign in sheets for each organization must be submitted for processing. Each organization has a requirement that sign in sheets must be maintained and held onto for a minimum of five years after the course is given in the event of an audit. A certificate of completion will be sent to each attendee and unlike in years past, starting in 2017, only digital certificates will be provided. Paper certificates will only be provided if requested.
