    Default Structural Collapse Training

    Does anyone know of where I can get info for training in the area of structural collapse. I have not been able to really find any good info on training. There does not seem to be many links or sites regarding this. PS, I did find a company out of PA last year, but am not able to locate this info again. Thanks
