User Loads in MiTek Structure

Do you want to learn more about adding user loads (line loads, point loads, and area loads) in Structure? If so, attend MiTek's Virtual Training Day on Friday, August 28th when all four sessions are dedicated to teaching designers about methods for properly loading components in MiTek Structure. 

Note that recordings from previous virtual training sessions are available on the training recording page.

Feel free to register for a single session or the entire day!
