Masonry Codes and Wall Bracing courses to be held at National Headquarters
By Tim O’Toole
Understanding Masonry Codes & StandardsThis seminar will guide you step-by-step through the recently updated masonry specification provisions included in the consensus masonry standards and cover basic masonry design and construction examples that contractors need to know, using both the Code and the Specification. This seminar is intended for contractors who will be applying for Certification and who use the Specification to erect masonry structures.
By the end of this seminar, you will have a real feel for the Code, so that you can put the new Masonry Code into practice.
Masonry Wall Bracing CourseThe Masonry Wall Bracing Design Course has been developed to provide contractors with the know-how to confidently design and construct bracing for a variety, of common masonry structures. This is an opportunity to save your company money by designing your own wall bracing rather than paying a structural engineer.
This 5 hour course is intended to teach project managers, safety managers, foremen and any other responsible person to understand and implement the OSHA regulation on wall bracing, the Standard Practice for Bracing Masonry Walls, and the Masonry Wallbracing Design Handbook. Completion of this course will allow your people to safely and efficiently design adequate masonry wall bracing. Why pay an engineer for a design that you can do yourself?
There are still spots available for both courses but space is filling up fast! Download the registration form or contact the Mason Contractors Association of America at 800-536-2225 to sign up today!
