PLEASANTON, Calif. - For several decades, Simpson Strong-Tie has made training customers a priority. The company has eight training centers across North America and provides hundreds of complimentary classes to engineers, architects, builders and code officials each year. Simpson Strong-Tie trained more than 12,000 customers on site last year. To broaden its educational reach, the company is now offering online training courses and has become an authorized provider of IACET Continuing Educations Credits.

Although classroom training is the traditional method of learning, online learning is becoming a popular option because of its convenience and availability. Simpson Strong-Tie 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 1/2 and 1 1/2 hours to complete.
