Two from Mosaic Associates Architects Earn ALEP Credential



Mosaic Associates Architects announced that Associate Principal Callie Gaspary and Architectural Designer Amanda Vottis recently completed the Advanced Academy for Designing Learning Spaces to become Accredited Learning Environments Planners (ALEP).

The rigorous Advanced Academy is a comprehensive 36-week program of study grounded in the key knowledge and skills central to the sound planning, building and maintenance of learner-centered school facilities.

The ALEP credential is a mark of excellence developed by the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE, formerly known as CEFPI) to reflect the knowledge, skills and abilities of a competent educational facility planner. According to A4LE, those who receive the ALEP credential represent the “highest qualification in our profession.”

“The A4LE is the only professional organization whose principal focus is improving the places where children learn,” said Mosaic Principal Mike Fanning. “The accreditation is a glowing affirmation of Callie’s and Amanda’s knowledge, work, and commitment to education.”
