Sponsored by Roseburg
Continuing Education

Learning Objectives - After listening to this course, you should be able to:

  1. Describe Engineered Wood Products (EWP) and their primary uses.
  2. Discuss the environmental advantages which come from using EWP.
  3. Leverage these benefits to make your project more environmentally sound.
  4. Identify and utilize the economies inherent in EWP.
  5. Describe the environmental, health and safety issues that can be associated with other framing products and how those can be reduced by using EWP.
  6. Identify what tools are available from EWP producers and associations to increase your project



Each choice in construction has an impact on the character of the finished product, whether your client wants an environmentally friendly home, a home that wears well over time, or is concerned about price and resale value. Each building starts with a base and a frame. In this course we are focusing on one option for frame design. Engineered wood products (EWP) are a strong, safe and green alternative to steel and dimension lumber for framing residential and light commercial projects.
