Online Seminars

After providing live seminars to the steel construction industry since our founding in 1990, SSTC will soon offer the industry online, on-demand, recorded seminars. Internet speeds and training software technology now allow for this method of providing the same level of information to you, without the need for you to travel, take off work, miss those inspections or miss those meetings. Also, because of such technology, most organizations (AWS and ICC, for example) now accept such on-line recorded seminars for continuing education purposes, when used with appropriate monitoring and quizzes.

SSTC is International Code Council Preferred Provider number 1090.
