FastenMaster and Colorado Builder Help Host Deck Training Day

FastenMaster has recently teamed with Colorado-based deck builder O’Keefe Built Inc. and BuildStrong Academy of Colorado to host a day-long, 10-step deck building training session for individuals interested in learning about the industry.

The event was held at the BuildStong Academy in Denver and attracted people looking for new opportunities in the trades who wanted to learn about the tools, materials, and best practices for safely building a 10 ft. x 12 ft. deck.

The training was divided into 10 sections including ledger attachment, joist layout, stairs, and more. In addition, a special focus was placed on safety, building code and the finishing touches that separate a regular deck from a well-crafted deck.

“We were very pleased to be part of this program,” said David Ellis, director of sales for FastenMaster. “There is a critical need for tradespeople in all areas of construction, and providing the day-long, hands-on experience opportunity to these students is a great way to both showcase the deck building industry and meet with some great people who may enter our industry.”
