Course Title: Engineered Lumber Design and Construction

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: This seven-hour course examines the importance of following manufacturer specifications for the application and construction using engineered wood products, including those for flooring systems, roof systems, fire protection, framing, and multi-family construction. The course will also look at code compliance provisions found in the International Residential Code and the International Building Code.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to comply with engineered wood product manufacturer specifications and building codes for the proper material selection and assembly of engineered wood flooring systems.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to comply with engineered wood product manufacturer specifications and building codes for the proper selection of engineered I-Joists, beams and columns, which will support design loads in flooring systems.

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to differentiate fire-resistive and fire-resistance-rated floor assemblies and apply knowledge about I-Joist framed floors and their fire performance as it relates to International Residential Code provisions for fire compliance.

Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to identify and describe the five types of constructions per the International Building Code and compare them with the three most common methods of framing, and they will be able to discuss how this information applies to multi-family structural design.
