Truss Technician Training Level I
TTT Level I is an introduction for wood truss design technicians, estimators, and
salespeople to acquire the design and engineering fundamentals of metal plate connected
trusses. Students will be expected to perform calculations, solve problems, review
presentations, and respond to interactive quiz questions interspersed throughout the
sections. The purpose of the course is to examine industry design standards and factors
affecting truss fabrication from design to installation and to prepare truss technicians
for the Level I Certification Exam. This course is also available as TTT Limit States Level I, which uses metric measurements and references to the 2005 National Building Code of Canada.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will have a better understanding of the truss
design and manufacturing process, the application of trusses, basic math, trigonometry
and load development as it relates to truss design, and be prepared to advance to Level
II of Truss Technician Training. This course is best suited for individuals who have a
basic knowledge of trusses and a desire to improve their technical skills and
understanding of the truss industry.
Also, individual sections are available as Component Technology Workshops
for continuing education credits.
