Sherwin-Williams has introduced a free online series of courses for architects, designers and green building professionals. 

Sherwin-William Online Learning Center gives free 24-hour access to CEU credits for courses covering a broad range of topics, from paints and coatings to color and design, according to the Cleveland, OH-based company.

The Courses

Sherwin-Williams partnered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC) and Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) to certify credits in the courses.


Professionals can now earn CEU credits through the new learning portal.

Those credits are then processed within days of completion.

The class categories are:

  • Paint & Coatings: This category explores a broad range of topics within paint and coatings. In “Paint 101” students discover the evolution of paint technology and the four basic components of paint. Other topics range from courses on protective architectural coatings to decorative concrete finishes, according to the company.
  • Color & Design: Classes in this category teach the origins of each color and the principles of color and light.

The company says the website also provides access to additional resources to help professionals in their work by providing larger paint color samples, explore colors and view product specifications, or download green building guides.
