How does LEEDv4 impact operations and performance over time? Additionally, learn how your LEED 2009 project might fare if it were to follow LEEDv4. Could your project still become certified? Discover a few high performance strategies that carry more weight in LEEDv4 and those areas where importance and available points have been reduced.

The instructor has some bias towards its local and national environment and did not particularly consider the particularities that LEED projects may face elsewhere in the world.
Appart from that it was a useful review of LEED v4

The presenter was fantastic. They were interesting to listen to, informative, and real with their perspective. Based on the length of the presentation, I would think this course should have been 2 CE's.

Little dry and not very engaging. It was hard to stay focused with powerpoints just read to you. An in person presentation would have been better.

Long, rambling presentation. The speaker kept smaking his lips, which got extremely irritating after almost 2 hours of listening.

As an environmental consultant actively working on LEED 2009 projects, this training provides a good overview of changes to non-technical credits in LEEDv4. If one is looking for more details on more technical credits, this is not the correct training and one should seek a training focused on the topic of interest. The training is in the form of a USGBC Chapter presentation and is presented in a refreshingly easy going way, which makes the almost two hour training seem to go by much more quickly. Advice and good hints are given in a practical manner, rather than simply a LEED infomercial.

Kevin is certainly an entertaining speaker and doesn't hold back on his comments about LEED BD&C Version 4. Robust would be a good word to use! However although a long presentation the content provides some needed insights in where the changes came from, the impacts that USGBC are trying to make and observations how best to go about making certain that not only are you satisfying USGBC but the whole concept of moving buildings forward in their design and construction. Every credit is examined and dissected with interesting insights from Kevin to add spice to the mix. This is a 'lunch and learn' so the presentation is based on that format (being there at the time was obviously half the fun), but that should not detract you from working through this presentation.
Great material that you could crib from Kevin especially when meeting with clients and other contractors.
