This course will fulfills the 1 hour Wind Mitigation requirement in Florida
This interactive online course will cover the latest wind design and wind mitigation requirements from the Florida Building Code (based on ASCE 7-10, the 2010 version of the ASCE standard). In this course, we will cover what is applicable in this building code, types of issues covered in the wind design arena, and changes to the wind speed maps. Other issues covered include exposure of a building site, opening protection and enclosure classifications for how to protect a building in wind regions. The code has an alternate all heights method, which will be covered briefly. We will also talk about roof and wall components, and the special requirements for those components in high velocity hurricane zones, or more specifically, south Florida.
