Technical timber webinars: Next dates announced

TRADA image

Following the remarkable success of BM TRADA's previous series of technical timber webinars, which saw 1200 registrants per webinar, we are delighted to announce that the three core series are returning once more this autumn and winter – with some small changes!


In response to feedback, we have extended the length of webinars within the Structural Timber Engineering series from one and a half hours to two, giving more time to each presenter and enabling us to provide a more comprehensive Q&A.


Meanwhile, the Fundamentals of Timber series has been restructured into four convenient webinars. Access the same comprehensive information on a fortnightly basis across November and December instead of weekly.


Registration for the next round of webinars is now open. Please book using the individual links below.


If you have any questions or need support, please get in touch with BM TRADA's Jane Lomas on jane.lomas@bmtrada.com.
