Free Connector Training Materials


Recommended Posts

Simpson Strong Tie corporation is offering a series of free connector training CD-ROMs or Videos to anyone that requests them. These materials are the first developed under the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Housing Quality (NHQ) Certified Training Materials Program guidelines. The NHQ program is designed to foster consistency and quality in building practices and Simpson is the first building products manufacturer to become an official sponsor of the NHQ program.

There are three training kits available. The first - Basic Fastener Installation - covers basic connector installation and fundamentals, including proper fastener selection and use. The second kit - Introduction to Joist and Beam Hangers - identifies the differences between typical face mount and top flange hanger installations, and teaches participants how to correctly install joist and beam hangers. The third - Introduction to Mudsill Anchors - identifies proper mudsill anchor installation methods, discusses framing considerations and applications related to mudsill anchors, and educates the installer about common misinstallations.

The CD-Roms and Videos can be ordered online at the Simpson Strong-Tie website or contact Simpson directly by telephone at at (800) 999-5099 (toll free).
