The Steel Joist Institute (SJI) will be hosting its October webinar, titled "Open Web Steel Joists 101," which will highlight the basics of open web steel joists and joist girders.

The webinar will be on Wednesday, October 19 from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. (EDT). Participants can earn 0.15 CEUs or 1.5 PDHs. Ideal for first time and occasional joist specifiers and seasoned specifying engineers, the webinar will provide an overview of SJI publications and explain basic terms used to specify products. In addition, it will address how the SJI specifications dovetail into the IBC building code.

Individual and site registration for the webinar is now available online at www.steeljoist.org/101webinar. Individual registration cost is $25.00 and each person who registers will receive his or her own link to the webinar and earn 0.15 CEUs or 1.5 PDHs. The website lists details on additional discounts available for larger number of registrants. Site registration also is available for $100.00, allowing multiple attendees from the same company to utilize one link to the webinar. However, site registration provides a maximum of 10 participants to earn 0.15 CEUs or 1.5 PDHs and receive a certificate of completion from SJI. Additional charges may be applicable if more than 10 certificates are requested. Some restrictions vary by state, so please check the SJI website for details.

Besides setting standards for the steel joist industry, the Steel Joist Institute works closely with major building code bodies throughout the country helping to develop code regulations regarding steel joists and Joist Girders. The Institute also invests thousands of dollars in research related to steel joists and Joist Girders and offers a complete library of publications and other training and research aids.

The Steel Joist Institute is a not-for-profit organization. For more information, visit www.steeljoist.org BD+C
