“I was impressed with the software. Iíve used free online courses before from other organizations, and sometimes they can be difficult to maneuver, but I found this CTW course easy to navigate. The course was very descriptive and informative, and it offered a lot more than I expected. Iíve only scratched the surface of what the CTW site has to offer.”

“The [permanent bracing] course was effective as it provided information and details for bracing a truss system, emphasized the importance of this bracing, and identified who is responsible for the various aspects of the design.

“I found your courses on both wood and cold-formed steel truss permanent bracing very informative ... We need more courses like these two and for credit.”

“I thought the on-line courses were great. The slides and over-all presentation were easy to follow. I will definitely recommend these on line course to my colleagues.”

“I really like the [permanent bracing] course. Itís a challenge to get everyone to understand permanent bracing requirements. This course shows that bracing is required beyond whatís needed to prevent displacement and explains everyoneís responsibilities when it comes to permanent bracing.”

“[Mold and Structural Wood Components] is the first online course I have taken from CTW. It was very well done and easy to use.”

“I thought [the CTW on Fire Assemblies] was very good. It explained a lot of things and reinforced some of the things we already knew. It was a sort of double check.”

“I was a little weak on my truss design requirements and I wanted to get a little smarter on truss manufacturing and handling ... Now that I'm set up [on the CTW site], I plan on using that resource if I run into other situations.”
