Course Outline

This one hour internet course is intended to provide a minimum of one hour of instruction of continued education for Florida certificate holders and registrants pertaining to Gable End Anchoring and Framing.  Inspection of residential buildings that endured past hurricanes in Florida has shown that one of the most damaged structural components in residential homes is the gable-end wall or the gable-end truss for timber wall or masonry wall constructions.  This course is based on the 2014 Florida Building Code changes that surround the most common causes of gable end failure during high velocity hurricane events.

 

METHOD OF PRESENTATION:  This distance learning course is formatted specifically for internet delivery.  Course presentation will require student participation through section reviews and assessments.  This method of course presentation assures that student will have direct control of course delivery.

Course material will be presented using multimedia formats, including but not limited to:  static text, narration, photos and illustrations. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to link to related resource websites and applicable articles.  Participants will be able to access instructor support via email (24 hour) and telephone communication (during normal daytime office hours).

Course #2: Advanced Thermal and Moisture Protection: Keeping the Weather Out Course # AIABLTI324.2/ FL-9878352 1-Hour

 

Course Description

Protecting buildings from the weather and moisture related problems is important for all building professionals.  In areas of high rainfall, and in northern climates, it is even more important that designers, builders, and their subcontractors use “Best Practice” procedures to carefully plan and install thermal and weather resistant components.  This course, based on the 2010 Florida Building codes, pertains to moisture and weather related problems, and will identify practical solutions based on those requirements.  This internet course is intended to provide a minimum of one hour of continuing education to professionals involved in planning, design and construction of structures susceptible to moisture related issues.

 

METHOD OF PRESENTATION:  This distance learning course is formatted specifically for internet delivery.  Course presentation will require student participation through an assessment.  This method of course presentation assures that student will have direct control of course delivery.

Course material will be presented using multimedia formats, including but not limited to:  static text, photos and illustrations.  Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to link to related resource websites and applicable articles.  Participants will be able to access instructor support via email (24 hour) and telephone communication (during normal daytime office hours).

 

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the key elements (either natural or mechanical) of a properly ventilated structure.
  • List and describe at least three specific installation techniques and/or materials that contribute to a properly constructed roof system.

Course Description

The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The 2010 Standards set minimum requirements – both scoping and technical – for newly designed and constructed, or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

This one hour video course covers the fourth chapter of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, Accessible Routes. The material for this course is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, including onsite, real world video examples in various accessible buildings used by both the public and private sector.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of adequate accessible routes for people with disabilities.
  • Identify the ADA requirements for doorways, ramps, curb ramps, elevators and platforms.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA standards for the construction of either a public or private building.
  • Summarize the options available to the design or building professional when designing a facility per the requirements of the ADA Standards.

Real-life stories will relay information that will help any designer to successfully navigate through the challenges of this very specific type of building design.

This course will highlight the right questions, demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to the critical issues. Through the many following examples, this course will offer instruction on how to approach a renovation or addition project with justified confidence.

 

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to translate the requests of the client into a realistic, safe, and cost-effective project.
  • Gain confidence in the ability to specify, and identify any code related issues or requirements in order to facilitate proper construction.

Course #5: Getting Decked:  And Choosing How That Happens

3 HSW — Credit(s) earned on completion of this course will be reported to AIA CES for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for both AIA members and non-AIA members will be available to print upon completion of this course. This course is registered with AIA CES for continuing professional education.

Course Description

Despite our need for shelter from elements, we have always sought opportunity to get back into or close to nature. A large part of our effort to reunite with nature has revolved around creating outdoor spaces adjoining our houses. There, we can get outside to enjoy favorable climate conditions, at whatever time we choose.

These outdoor spaces go by many names and have manifested as lanais, porches, screened enclosures, patios, etc. The most common outdoor spaces, constructed and attached to homes in western cultures, are outdoor decks, balconies and patios. For the purposes of this course, we will explore options available to build decks, balconies, and structures that are usually supported at some point above grade.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • The evolving use of different materials to construct safe and usable outdoor surfaces
  • Strengths and weaknesses of each available outdoor surface option
  • New surfacing options that have been developed to overcome decking material limitations
  • How surfacing materials are being combined to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths

Course #6: Construction Documents For Successful Projects

Course Description

A well prepared and accurate technical specification can be easily undone if Divisions 00 and 01 of the project manual are deficient. The ‘front-end’ specification, or general conditions, is the tool that directs the contractor from the day he is introduced to the project through to completion. Without it, the architect, the client, and the builder are vulnerable to being sadly surprised. A well written ‘front-end’ can protect the architect and the builder from accusations of neglect, cost over-runs, demands for an expansion of the scope and much more. This course will teach the many elements of the front-end specification that are essential to success.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the intentions and goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project.
  • Understand and be able to comply with federal laws if the project is paid for with governmental funds.
  • Specify and identify any code related issues or requirements in order to facilitate proper construction.
