Technical Truss training given by trainer Eric Laanstra. Become familiar with the different types of forces and loads on truss and their effects. In addition, an explanation is given about building temporary structures with truss, for example building a roof with your own truss. This takes into account the latest regulations and what you need to build safely.

The course was very informative. At Marshall Music I mainly sell equipment but you need to know and have this training when someone wants to buy truss from you. You need to make sure that what you’re selling them actually stays up, that people adhere to codes. I found it very useful.
