Permanent Bracing, B3 or CFSB3, and Risk Management

These two new online courses begin with a brief overview of the purpose of permanent bracing for wood and cold-formed steel components. They examine the challenges that construction industry professionals face when it comes to permanent bracing and some collaborative projects aimed at helping to clarify this issue. Each course reviews the BCSI-B3 or CFSBCSI-B3 Summary Sheets on permanent bracing and provides valuable risk management tips for building designers.

“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.”

– Edward J. Reed PE,
Reed Engineering, Chestertown, MD

“I really like the course. It’s a challenge to get everyone to understand permanent bracing requirements. This course shows that bracing is required beyond what’s needed to prevent displacement and explains everyone’s responsibilities when it comes to permanent bracing.”

– Matthew Varvel,
County of San Luis Obispo Building Department, CA
