House Framing Methods Course

Fees: $299 | Hours: 45 | Type: Online | Enroll

House framing involves all the methods and materials used to create the structure of the home. It includes the foundation, walls, ceilings, roof, decks, openings and any other part of the home that must support weight. Most house framing is only visible from unfinished areas. This makes it difficult to spot defects unless you have a solid knowledge of framing.

PHII's in-depth framing course will teach you all the types of house framing you are likely to encounter as a home inspector. Starting with the common terminology used, this course will take you step-by-step through each part of the framing process using hundreds of photos, diagrams, and video clips. The course begins with the different types of wood framing including platform, balloon, and post-and-beam, and also covers concrete, steel and masonry framing. You will even learn about straw bale and rammed earth framing which is still used in parts of the country including the state of Texas.

The course, available online and on CD-ROM, teaches you how to distinguish one type of framing from another and where to look for defects in various types of framing. As you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test and verify your knowledge simultaneously through instant online feedback. Your computer records the results so you can easily track your progress. When you finish the course you will feel more confident and informed about all areas of house framing.
