Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Design Considerations and Construction Techniques for Modern Wood Buildings , you'll learn ...

  • Modern construction methods for foundations, floors, exterior walls, ceilings and roofs using the platform framing method
  • Post-frame construction method for commercial and residential buildings
  • Timber-frame, mill type and glulam beam construction
  • Design and construction considerations for modern wood buildings, including structural, insulation, moisture, and sound control

Prior to the 20th century, wood was the major structural material for most houses and commercial buildings. Today, many houses and light commercial buildings are constructed using modern wood structural materials, such as roof and floor trusses, plywood and OSB. Also, an increased interest exists for using wood for transportation structures, including bridges.

This course is intended to provide the student with an understanding of the different types of wood structural material used in construction along with many factors that must be considered when constructing wood buildings.
