Upcoming Classes: May 8-9, 2017

We can also bring SIPs 202 to your location.  Contact us to schedule.

If you're planning on building with SIPs, this is the class for you. The SIPs 202 workshop combines classroom time and hands-on experience in the SIPschool shop. Students will complete the Builder Education with SIPs online classes through Lesson 9 before attending the SIPs 202 session. Students are encouraged to bring their own project plans and schedule a brief consultation/review by our SIP designer.
  • Day One:  We'll spend the morning reviewing SIP basics and Q & A. After lunch we'll move into the SIP tool review. If time allows, students will receive the panel layout drawings and begin review for their Day 2 project. 
  • Day Two: Class project - students will build a small SIP structure using panel layout drawings to fabricate, install and seal SIPs in the field. We'll discuss all mechanical, HVAC, and cladding options as the project progresses. 

Who should attend:

Any builder, contractor, architect, building inspector or homeowner looking for practical and useful instruction to introduce them to SIPs.  It is designed for any person who wants to take an active role in SIP installation whether hands on or in a supervisory role.
