The content of the presentation was informative, although it was essential to have a copy of the LEED v4 rating system at hand. Perhaps each slide could have a footer to the relevant section of the rating system as a cross-reference.

Great course - clearly, engagingly & accessibly presented, great back & forth between presenters.
Loved the step by step approach & sharing practical examples & experiences, made it an enjoyable & interesting session. Thank you also for providing the slides, with useful details, for future reference.
It would be very helpful to have a future session on the detail of how to tackle & complete the forms /templates/ calculators to achieve the credits, with completed examples shown, some of the common errors made & pitfalls to avoid discussed - thank you!.

The course was chock-a-block full of useful information in understanding applying these credits to a real project! It doesn't hurt that I am working on a LEED v4 O + M: EB project (and it's pre-establishment), so this is the right-time.
