Truss Basics is the same great information as Truss Technician Training Level I but with less technical and time-intensive Math and Load Development sections. It is aimed at those who want to understand truss design procedures but will not be performing truss design. Salespeople, estimators, administrative staff, suppliers and construction industry professionals will benefit from this well-received course on the structural building component industry.

Iindividual sections are also available as Component Technology Workshops for continuing education credits.
