Morning Session: Firestopping Life Safety

MORNING SESSION DESCRIPTION: Life Safety Seminar is a comprehensive 3-hour learning course that will give attendees a deep dive into the major components of firestop and how they impact life safety of buildings. During the course, we will not only look at the major categories of passive compartmentation, firestop systems, including joints, penetrations, and edge of slab, but we will also look at how the code has evolved over time and where firestop fits into the International Building Code. At the conclusion of the course participants should be able to identify: What is Firestop and why do we use it, Compartmentation and the elements that are included, Important Code updates from 2012, 2015, 2018, How firestop systems are tested and listed with the applicable testing jurisdictions, and secondary attributes attributed to proper use and selection.

Afternoon Session: IRC Deck Connection

AFTERNOON SESSION DESCRIPTION: Wood framed decks are often overlooked when it comes to structural integrity and code requirements.  Many people overlook the fact that decks must be designed and constructed to resist stresses from uplift, lateral, and other loads that result from wind and seismic activity along with the people and objects that occupy the deck.  This class will provide an introductory look at some of the core code requirements for deck construction from the IRC.


During our workshops at Simpson Strong-Tie, proprietary items may be used in our literature and as part of tests and installation demonstrations. We think their inclusion is fundamental to increasing learners’ competency with respect to structural design and connections, anchoring solutions and limitations, and structural systems dynamics.
