As a person with no construction/building background, I found there was a significant amount of useful “general rules” for structures that will help me to understand and better plan operations.
The practical exercises helped to reinforce the information.
The practical portion of the course allowed me to take what we had gone over in the class and apply it to a real situation, which is often more complex and difficult. It was a test that allowed me to see what I had learned in the class. Both instructors were very knowledgeable.
