SWA Academy is a user-paced learning platform that provides education for building design, construction, and operations professionals, as well as students.

After providing decades of classroom and in-person training, we felt it was time to address one of the industry’s greatest barriers – workforce development – by creating a more efficient and accessible option for training.
