The "Implementing LEED Homes" presentation provided an effective degree of depth in the prerequisite and credit description for V3. The examples as well as the description of the intent behind the LEED Homes credits/prereq's helps to flesh out the process of using the LEED framework, as well as a reminder to raters. This course is for folks who are familiar with green and have general LEED understanding and want to get a firm grasp of Homes.

This course is appropriate for those interested in the LEED for Homes Rating System- architects, builders, and consultants. The course is good for a review and those who are new to the use of the rating system. The information provided is very useful for the understanding of the LEED for Homes process, parties and review of strategies implemented in case study projects and a full review of the MR category. A benefit of this course is that example information and photos from projects are provided. This differs from other courses that only review the credit-by-credit information, but do not provide the actual application. This course also touches on LEEDv4 and how projects will apply which is helpful to review.
