This is a great start, but how do you get contractors - especially framers -
to purchase the video and view it? How do you determine if they learned from
it? This would be more effective if accompanied by a CEU program that
requires testing to confirm the benefit received from the training.

The issue of the quality of construction in the wood framed residential
construction has been discussed several times on this list.  It has been
suggested that framers/carpenter/contracters should be required to know
some things about load paths.   Well, there is now something of interest
that I just read in my EERI newsletter.

EERI will be releasing a video to be used for "training" framers on the
importance of load path.  The 15 minute video should be available by now
according to the newsletter.  The video will cost $25 plus CA tax.  You can
contact EERI if you are interested.  If you want more information that what
I listed here, you may go to the EERI web page ( and see an
online version of the article in the newsletter (under the Jan. 2000
