This course is part 3 of a 4 part series on LEED for Homes. Part 3 covers EA and IEQ credits. The course walks you through the credits in a manner that makes it understandable as to which approaches you can use to obtain the credits and how they differ. While the course is intermediate in its detail and explanation of the credits, the course can be followed by anyone with an understanding of LEED credits and categories. The education is in how these are applicable to LEED for Homes.

I enjoyed the course even though it was heavy on details. I must say that I enjoy LEED and the ways in which LEED betters our buildings so I’m biased in my attraction to this type of course. I started with this Part III because of my specific interest in EA (and IAQ too) and how LEED for Homes addresses it.

The slides and other resources that you can download are extremely useful and the exam at the end is fair. I had some technical difficulties with the video and audio being in sync as I went back a few times in the course so the downloadable slides were great to use in those instances. The glitch may just be on my end and it didn’t detract too much from the course.
