A PDHengineer webinar is just like being there.

4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

This webinar introduces and explains both fundamental and intermediate concepts of steel design for engineers, technicians, and other professionals who have little or no background in steel design. It also offers non-structural engineers an opportunity to become familiar with general concepts of design and design criteria, while learning basic use of the most recent steel design codes and specifications from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).

Among the topics we will discuss are the load and resistance factor design method (LRFD), as well as the allowable strength design method (ASD); various load types and loading systems; steel engineering properties; tension members, compression members, and members in bending. And much more.

This 8-hour webinar is packed with information. The schedule will include two 10-minute breaks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and a 45-minute lunch break. Please be prepared to accommodate the schedule. It is highly recommended that participants use either a speakerphone or telephone headset for comfort during the webinar.
