Building Construction

Building Construction : 1.00-16.00 Hours

Course Description

This class provides an understanding of construction types from fire resistive materials such as brick, block, concrete and steel, to wood frame structures. These typical single family and multifamily residential or business occupancies may be balloon frame, “stick built” with full dimensional lumber, or engineered components. The structural members of floor and roof systems are discussed as they relate to their intended purpose and what they do under live and dead loads while under the stress of fire and suppression activities. Openings such as windows, doors, skylights and ventilation shafts are discussed as they relate to the firefighting, search and rescue profile.
