To broaden its educational reach, Simpson Strong-Tie is now offering online training courses and has become an authorized provider of IACET Continuing Educations Credits.

The company has developed online content for some of its in-class courses, such as its Deck Building – Beginners’ Course and Introduction 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.

Continuing 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.
