Course Title:  AISC Certification -  Low Floor-to-Floor Structural Steel Framing:
An Economical Solution for Multi-Story Residential Construction Projects - 1 PDH 

Speaker:  Jacinda Collins P.E., American Institute of Steel Construction

Market conditions have changed recently and structural steel framing has become an economical alternative to structural concrete for mid-rise hotels and other multi-story residential projects.
This one-hour presentation will provide a detailed description of four steel-framed systems that can achieve floor-to floor heights as low as 8’-8” while offering greater speed and economy over conventional concrete framing systems. Attendees will learn what these different systems are and how they provide benefits to the architect and client. The presentation will also include examples of recently completed steel-framed multi-story residential projects describing how the use of each particular system benefited the project owner.

Course Title:  Choices of Air Barriers for Commercial Building Enclosure - 1 PDH

Speaker:  Harold Decker, Dupont Manufacturer's Representative

The purpose of this seminar is to briefly review the impact of air leakage on building enclosure performance and to describe different types of air barrier systems for air leakage control. The seminar is organized in two sections:

1. The first section is a brief review of air leakage impact on building enclosure performance and the importance of air leakage control.
2. The second section provides a description of the main types of air barrier membranes for commercial building enclosure: mechanically fastened or building wraps, fluid applied (FA), and self-adhered (SA) or peel-and-stick. Other air barrier types such as Sprayed Polyurethane Foams (SPF) will also be reviewed. A brief description, examples of products and manufacturers, typical properties, application methods, system components and advantages & limitations will be discussed for each air barrier type.

Learning Objectives: After attending this seminar, you will be able to understand
1. The impact of air leakage on building enclosure performance
2. Basic features of Self-Adhered air barrier systems (SA)
3. Basic features of Fluid-Applied air barrier systems (FA)
4. Basic features of Mechanically-Fastened air barrier systems (Building Wraps)
5. Basic features of Spray Polyurethane Foams (SPF) and others (e.g. Board stock) air
    barrier systems
