Illinois** state chapter of InterNACHI**
Is proud to PRESENT
DECK FRAMING/CONSTRUCTION COURSE
PRESENTED BY: RYAN SCHAEFER, TERRITORY MANAGER FOR SIMPSON STRONG-TIE
This is a new course that was recently approved for 3 CEU’s by the State of Illinois. I had the opportunity to meet a company rep. at the conference in Canada and we discussed the need for a deck course for Home Inspectors. In subsequent conversations, we were able to work out the details and the company developed this course specifically for Home Inspectors. This will be the first time the course has been presented and the Simpson Strong-Tie folks are generously donating a very nice hand-out for the Inspectors that take the course. Simpson Strong-Tie was involved in developing current building guidelines for decks in the Chicago area and considered to be one of the leading experts in this field.
A few of the things the course covers are:
ü Deck construction and how to inspect and evaluate a deck for proper connection details
ü Understanding misapplications of various methods used to construct a wood deck
ü Common corrosion issues
This course is approved by the State of Illinois for 3 CEU’s and is being offered on March 27, 2008 at Pheasant Run Resort from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ***Visit us at: ***www.pheasantrun.com](http://www.pheasantrun.com/)

non-member fee is $75.00.
****If you register (or are registered) for the Commercial Inspection Course to be held on March 28 and 29, your fee for the Deck Course is waived. ***
