Introduction to Plan Reading, Quiz & Discussion

This webinar will review basic plan reading for those unfamiliar and new to this important field skill. Emphasis will be on the purpose of plans, different types of information communicated on drawings, along with typical ways to show information through section cuts, details, schedules, and general notes.

Attendees also have the option to participate in a plan reading quiz and discussion session immediately after this webinar. TMS will provide an electronic set of plans and quiz questions that are similar to those examinees may see on the ICC Structural Masonry Special Inspectors Plan Reading Exam.
