Are more trade skills required to work with steel framing?

Steel framing is now an integral part of apprentice carpenter training, ensuring the next generation will be trained from the start of their careers in both materials. Builders that have worked with timber all their lives and changed to steel framing have been surprised how easy it is to work with steel.
