Format: Text-based
CE Info: 1.00 HSW LU
Contact Info: Customer Service (customerservice@ncarb.org)

Description: Failures seldom result from a single error made by an individual; they more often result from a combination of interrelated factors involving both technical and human (procedural) deficiencies. This course presents examples of material selection and detailing errors during the design process and offers guidance on how to avoid them. This course is one of a six-part series that investigates the sources of building failure. Each part can be taken as an individual course. In 2022, this material was reviewed and updated to remain timely but was not extensively rewritten.
