Truss Technician Training Level II
TTT Level II builds on skills acquired in TTT Level I. Level II covers advanced concepts
for math and load development for live, dead, snow, rain and wind loads. Students review
truss industry referenced standards like ANSI/TPI 1, ASCE-7 Design Loads for Buildings and
Other Structures, and the National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction.
Students perform calculations, solve problems, review presentations, and respond to
interactive quiz questions interspersed throughout the sections. The purpose of the course is
to advance the skills of truss technicians in math, load development, building code compliance
and to increase familiarity with current industry technical resources.
Upon completion of this course, students will have a better understanding of the
principles of wood member design and plate calculations, the application of dead, live, and
environmental loads in truss design, advanced load calculations and will be prepared to
advance to Level III of the Truss Technician Training. This course is best suited to
individuals who have an interest in advancing their career in the truss industry and are
interested in an advanced understanding of truss math and load development.
