NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Construction's Architectural Record (http://www.ArchitecturalRecord.com) has announced the winner of the Architectural Record One Millionth CEU Test-Taker Sweepstakes. Timothy E. Kwiatkowski, a vice president at Illinois-based FGM Architects, was awarded the grand prize of $5,000 cash for his participation in the company's Continuing Education program.
This year marks Architectural Record's 15th anniversary as an official AIA continuing education provider. The contest celebrates the milestone of more than one million continuing education tests taken through Architectural Record magazine, Architectural Record Continuing Education Center, events, and mobile app. The app enables AEC professionals to use smartphones and tablets to take hundreds of courses at no cost, to fulfill their continuing education requirements. The app, recognized this year by BtoB Magazine as one of the 10 top digital media products, and highlighted in the company's "Great Media Websites" award, is available in the iTunes App Store at http://bit.ly/HX5L6l.
"I selected Architectural Record's Continuing Education program because of the ease of selecting specific topics directly related to my work, as well as the ability to complete the programs at my own pace. I can stop and start as I need to, and the program reports directly to the AIA, eliminating the need to self-report. I would suggest the Architectural Record Continuing Education online program to anyone who, like me, wants to stay up to date on the latest technologies without being away from the office," said Kwiatkowski.
"We created this sweepstakes to celebrate the overwhelming acceptance of this educational platform and program provided by Architectural Record, and to reinforce our continued investment in professional development," said Laura Viscusi, vice-president Integrated Media for McGraw-Hill Construction, and publisher, Architectural Record. "We're very excited for Mr. Kwiatkowski, as well as for all those who won the secondary prizes—and we thank them for being loyal Record users."
