We understand that many states are providing an increase inspection regime for critical stage inspections.  AIBS has teamed with up with engineering experts at Pryda, to deliver this comprehensive webinar event.
Topics will include the following assessment methods used for trusses and applicable standards, being AS 1720.5 – design, AS 4446 – manufacture and AS 4440 – installation.  In addition to this training session, we will also be providing a detailed assessment methodology when determining wind classification using AS 4055.  
This training session is aimed at new entrants who have only a basic knowledge of inspecting, or for experienced building surveying professionals who need a refresher when assessing wind classifications and truss and frame designs.
