The company has
developed online content for some of its in-class courses, such as its
Deck Building – Beginners’ CourseandIntroduction to Joist and Beam Hangers. These
new online classes are available on the Web site any time of day and take
between 30 and 90 minute courses to complete.
Education Credits provide
professionals with an opportunity to maintain their credentials or licenses and
a permanent record of educational accomplishments. Simpson offers CEUs through
the International Association for Continuing Education and Training, a non-profit association dedicated to quality
continuing education and training programs. In order to become an accredited provider, Simpson Strong-Tie had to meet
strict continuing education guidelines. With the accreditation, the majority of the company’s training classes and
workshops can earn participants CEUs. Customers interested in credits
should contact their certifying licensing
organization or agency to inquire if they accept CEUs from IACET providers.
