Good overview for those just introducing themselves to LEED V4.0 plus enough detail where needed on the newest aspects of the LEED V4.0 A worthwhile webinar for those not even familiar with LEED as it does a nice job summarizing where it has been and also highlights its true rigor.

Good intro to LEED v4. I would slow down a little bit some explanations for newcomers to LEED! Thanks!!

Dean F. Unger, AIA, Inc.

A good overview. Probably would be better letting the student do his/her own read it. Reading it to people can slow them down in places and go too fast in places, where they are unfamiliar with a concept and would like to reread it.
More graphical interest and examples might help. I would have liked to see the actual EPD and letters written manufacturers.
Overall, I have to echo my fellow student, Steve, it takes a large cup of coffee to stay awake.

Well organized, easy to follow, excellent presenters. The presenters' style made it sound as if they could see their audience, not mere reading from a script. They also conveyed their knowledge of the material. I wish all presenters were as natural sounding.

The course is professionally summarizing LEED V4 contents.It can also be used as an introductory course to people who does not know about LEED or know who like to know more about it.

A well done course helping to inform about the specific changes affecting project teams transitioning to LEED V4. I lowered my overall rating due to the fact that this is an entry level course, not intermediate.

Director of Sustainable Education, GreenCE, Inc.

I completely agree, and the difficulty level has been adjusted to Basic.
