Osmose University

Leveraging 80 years of structural expertise to educate the next generation of utility and telecom personnel.

Each year, Osmose offers three non-commercial seminars designed to educate utility personnel – one for wood, one for steel, and one for joint use. These seminars are offered at no charge to Osmose customers, but seating is limited. We encourage customers to register quickly as these seminars do reach capacity well in advance.
