CLICK HERE FOR ECOURSE: Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide (DCA6-2015 Version)

Description: Hundreds of wood decks get built every year and some without the proper guidance for designing or constructing a safe deck. However, AWC DCA 6, which has been recently updated, includes guidance on provisions for the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) pertaining to single level residential wood deck construction. Provisions contained in this document that are not included in the IRC are considered good practice recommendations. This webinar will provide an overview of DCA 6 along with its Commentary and Appendices and include several examples showing application of the deck guide. 

Learning Objectives: 
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

Identify deck provision changes from the 2015 IRC and the corresponding DCA 6 along with a refresher on 2012 IRC provisions 
Identify minimum prescriptive wood deck requirements 
Describe deck construction including wood members and fasteners 
Discuss provisions in DCA6 Commentary and provide other resources
