This is not your average "Intro" course as our focus is to not repeat all of the information everyone has taught for decades,but to take a real world approach to increase your understanding of the industry as it relates to how you do your daily operations. We focus our attention on key processes like understating how to read plans/specs, designing firestop submittals, how the products are tested and what the codes says. Our goal is that this "Intro" class will still be a highly educational tool for the most seasoned installer, inspector or design professional.
