EERI is working on a seismic construction training program for building inspectors and contractors. The first phase is a training video on wood construction, and the important features of construction that provide seismic resistance. It is being prepared by an experienced contractor who has been involved in training others, with support by ICBO. Guidance on the project comes from a task group including SEAOC engineers, ICBO, building contractors, APA and other organizations. For further info, contact Marjorie Greene at EERI in Oakland, CA. It's the first step in a comprehensive program.
