The Masonry Society (TMS) with the support of the Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada and the Masonry Institute of America are sponsoring a comprehensive course aimed at helping inspectors, testing technicians, engineers, and building officials identify and verify key quality assurance items on the jobsite. The presentation uses the 2015 International Building Code (IBC) and the MSJC (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 & TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6) as the primary references and it overviews related ASTM standards and inspection guides.
Attendees will learn code inspection requirements, proper placement of materials, mortar and grout, how to determine the compressive strength of masonry, and appropriate severe weather procedures. This is an excellent course for those preparing for the ICC/TMS Structural Masonry Special Inspectors Certification Examination or to accumulate ICC Preferred Provider CEU's for renewal certification.
