We are the leader in the development of building codes and standards for wood design, and provide online and live training to support their implementation.
Our education programs include courses related to the use of traditional and engineered wood products for residential and commercial applications, and are ideally suited for code officials and design professionals.
We have partnered with the International Code Council (ICC), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and National Council on Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) to grant professional continuing education.
Wood material science influences its behavior from harvest through the use phase and beyond. This course will provide an introduction to wood material science, wood-moisture relations, and wood anatomy. The types of wood products structural engineers may use in designs, and the standards governing these products are also discussed.
