Event description


Our Training and Events Team has been working hard to ensure that the quality of our training does not differ despite no longer being in the classroom. We understand the importance of interacting with tutors and engaging with other delegates, and this has been prioritised when transferring our courses onto an online platform.

This course will be delivered virtually via Zoom and divided into manageable sessions. The content remains the same as the in-house version of the course and the group size is still limited to allow the same level of interaction to take place between delegates and the tutor(s).

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Design basic and more intricate timber connections to Eurocode 5
  • Appreciate the fracture mechanics aspects of wood behaviour and scientific research behind certain clauses of Eurocode 5
  • Appreciate the use of dowel type fasteners and contemporary connectors for practical applications
  • Use the connections chapter of Eurocode 5 for practical design situations
