About

Are we doing all that we can to optimize building performance as designer? Let’s examine some key design strategies that will ensure resource efficiency, owner support, and improved occupant well being while applying the US Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System.

We have an opportunity and an obligation to deliver high performance buildings that take into account the long-term impact of both the occupants in the space and the surrounding environment. In this session, we review updates to the LEED v.4 rating system with special attention to New Construction. A summary of each credit update will be addressed.

The target audience for this course is building owners, architects, professionals, LEED® accredited professionals or anyone interested how the rating system has changed with Version 4. A review of each credit is covered and participants should have prior knowledge of the LEED® Rating System Credits.

Objectives

  1. Develop an understanding of the benefits of sustainable design and market trends in this area.
  2. Differentiate between the LEED v4 and the LEED v2009 rating systems credit categories.
  3. Evaluate case examples of how to meet some credit requirements.
  4. Relate the long-term vision of LEED and the path to regenerative buildings.
  5. Apply the process for rolling out the LEED v4 rating system, how it will impact projects under previous versions, and the LEED Online interface.

In general, I would not recommend this course to viewers looking for a clear and concise overview of the LEED v4 program, nor would not consider this to be an intermediate level course. In terms of expectations, for an intermediate course, it only partially addresses objectives 2 and 3, and does not address objectives 4 and 5 outlined in the course description. There are also inaccuracies within the content of the presentation (and within the quiz) that do not fulfill the mission of USGBC education.

Great course to gain an overall and quick understanding of the benefits and differences from LEED 2009 to LEED V4 rating systems.
The benefit of the course its that it presents the main changes very straightforward!!!
I recommend prior knowledge of the LEED® Rating System Credits.
