The American Wood Council is the industry leader in development of building codes and standards for wood design and provides online and live contact training to support their implementation. Experienced, qualified AWC staff can provide training nation-wide. Seminar attendees receive special discounts on publication, a comprehensive seminar materials package, and a certificate upon seminar completion.
Some of the most popular topics are listed here. Each topic can be combined into a more comprehensive package. Live courses of three hours or more can be provided to audiences over 75 persons on request. For audiences less than 75, other considerations may apply such as Online Courses. Another option is to provide these courses via webinar.
AWC can provide Continuing Education Certificates for each course. Additionally, AWC has partnered with National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) Diamond Review Program, American Institute of Architects (AIA) CES Program, and International Code Council (ICC) Education Provider Partner Program to provide continuing education units (CEUs) on some of the courses. The courses that are registered with NCSEA, AIA, and ICC are referenced with an NCSEA, AIA, and/or ICC icon. Please note that AWC, AIA, ICC, and NCSEA do not warrant that a program complies with the continuing education requirements in all jurisdictions.
AWC's seminars are ideally suited as continuing education for building regulators (building and fire officials) and design professionals. For upcoming seminar events, see our calendar.
