This thorough, step-by-step review of MR credits 2-7 well prepares course participants to assemble the Contractor’s documentation for Materials and Resources credits for LEED online. The detailed guidance on creation of a Construction Waste Management Plan and utilization of the MR Calculator is particularly valuable. Contractors and Subcontractors will benefit from taking this excellent course, which merits wider distribution.

Detailed and thorough description of documentation process and requirements for the MR credits. There is a superb demonstration of the new v4 MR calculator that every LEED AP will appreciate. I like the resources that are provided with the course. Keep your LEED Checklist handy as the exam questions do not always spell out the entire name of the credit.

Excellent follow-up to part one. Same quality and thoughtful breakdown of the MR Credits. Recommended for all contractors as a guide to documentation.
