Bonding in wooden construction

Focus course of the WKI | AKADEMIE®

© best wood SCHNEIDER® GmbH

The WKI | AKADEMIE® offers the following courses under the topic “Bonding in timber construction”:

  • Specialist for bonding in wooden construction
  • Specialist for repair of load-bearing timber components using adhesives

Both focus courses are multi-day events and consist of defined training modules (see table). Basic knowledge is imparted on the execution of bonding work for the manufacture or repair of load-bearing timber components. The theoretical and practical contents are thereby closely coordinated.

For both courses, the WKI | AKADEMIE® offers its participants the option of a written examination. This can be used to prove successful participation in accordance with DIN 1052-10 and can be certified by the Fraunhofer WKI as a recognized testing body on the bonding of load-bearing timber components.
