The training course covers a comprehensive technical overview of timber roof structures, and aims to enable any technical person to conduct roof inspections with knowledge and insight; registered persons to sign off roofs on their own, knowing that they speak with authority; and individuals with experience in the roof construction industry to be sufficiently trained to be able to inspect roofs under an accredited ITC-SA professional engineer.

The course will include an introduction to timber roof structures, including basic terminology; the basics of timber structure design, framing and bracing; design considerations between light and heavily loaded timber roof structures; manufacturing of timber roof structures, transportation and storage; installation of timber roof structures; different timber roof structures and types of buildings; and case studies and experiences in roofing structures. The course will also include engaging site visits as well as a written evaluation.

The ITC-SA’s Roof Inspection Training Course carries three Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) CPD points. The cost of the course is R5 800 excluding VAT and is payable upfront upon application. The amount includes the ITC-SA Bracing Manual Volume 1, ITC-SA Bracing Manual Volume 2, a notepad and pen, a hard hat and reflector vest. Delegates must wear safety shoes for the site visits. Only 18 candidates per course will be permitted.
