Description: The composition of today’s fire service is drastically changing, with many of our firefighters no longer having had experience within the construction trades prior to entering the fire service.

This unique one day class will provide the attendees the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge about roof construction by venturing out into the field and participating in a hands on experience of framing several different roof styles including a conventionally framed roof, a truss roof, and a small commercial wood roof.

This class is designed for anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of building construction, as well as for those that prefer to learn through physical hands-on application of the subject.
