The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “Fastening and Firestopping Interior and Exterior Walls” on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs.  

This webinar will cover:
