TECHNICAL/EDUCATION

The Steel Framing Alliance and Association of the Wall & Ceiling Industries have teamed up to develop an intensive multi-day educational program that is designed to provide the lead framer, project supervisor, and construction manager with high level skills that are needed to understand steel framing principles, and to run an efficient and profitable operation. The program will also available on CD-ROM for those interested in self-paced study.

The STEEL Doing It Right seminar is organized by the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry and the Steel Framing Alliance. The seminar brings comprehensive education and training to those currently working in the steel framing industry and to those looking to expand their business. The content is based on industry accepted standards and best practices. The seminar covers the essential knowledge and techniques for the correct installation of cold-formed steel (CFS), as well as codes and standards effecting CFS; structural (load-bearing) wall assemblies; wind bearing and curtain wall framing; interior systems; roof assemblies; estimating; project management... and more.

Each seminar participant will receive a certificate of attendance; attending engineers are eligible for 16 Professional Development hours.

Seminar Instructors

The STEELDoing It Right seminar instructors are industry experts with backgrounds in steel and engineering. The seminar is well-structured and honed to two full days of class time. Instructors interact with attendees by using real-life scenarios while tabletop exhibits further illustrate the products and installations being discussed. There are also slides, video clips, and graphic animation to portray the range of material.

Summary of Content

This two-day (8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) seminar was formulated by experts from the Steel Framing Alliance, an organization at the forefront of the latest technological advances for building with cold-formed steel, and AWCI and its member experts.
