This advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.

COVID19 safety measures

Our team is working hard to prepare for a safe return to delivering in-person training at our London HQ from September 2021. However, we will continue to closely monitor the situation. Should it be necessary to make any adjustments, in response to future changes in government guidelines, this will be promptly communicated to delegates. Courses may be rescheduled for online delivery or for a future date.
