  • Module 5: Specifications Review
 

Course 3: LEED Documentation for Site Credits, Site Development and Water Efficiency Credits

Learn that some credits are inherent to the project site and should be considered during the site selection process. This course will also cover aspects of site development that can contribute to LEED credits, such as parking, heat island effect, stormwater management, open space, light pollution, landscape design and adaptations that can be made to site and building design to improve water efficiency.

  • Module 1: Site Credits Part I
  • Module 2: Site Credits Part II
  • Module 3: Water Credits
 

Course 4: Energy and Atmosphere Credits and LEED Documentation

This course will discuss energy performance and measurement documentation requirements and the use of renewable energy sources. Gain an understanding of how energy and refrigerant use can contribute to global warming and other environmental impacts and how changes to the design can reduce operating costs and the environmental footprint.

  • Module 1: Introduction to Energy Credits
  • Module 2: Energy Performance Credits
  • Module 3: Energy Measurement Credit
  • Module 4: Renewable/Green Energy Credits
 

Course 5: The Commissioning Process and LEED Documentation

Learn the benefits of the commissioning process (Cx), the responsibilities of the Cx Authority, and the Cx process along with the documentation requirements as applied in LEED projects, including the differences between the prerequisite and the credit requirements.

  • Module 1: Introduction to Energy Credits (repeat from Course 4)
  • Module 2: Commissioning (Cx) Part I
  • Module 3: Commissioning (Cx) Part II
  • Module 4: Energy Measurement Credit (repeat from Course 4 plus specific focus on issues related to Cx)
 

Course 6: Indoor Air Quality and LEED Documentation

Establish an understanding of the benefits that are provided to building occupants by delivering a healthy indoor environment and the various aspects that need to be considered. Students will also learn the documentation that is required for the IEQ credits, including the reduction of source emissions, ventilation requirements, and the provision of daylight and views.

  • Module 1: Indoor Air Quality Credits Part I
  • Module 2: Indoor Air Quality Credits Part II
  • Module 3: Indoor Air Quality Credits Part III
  • Module 4: Indoor Air Quality Credits Part IV
 

Course 7: LEED Certification Process and Procedures and Innovation and Regional Priority Credits

Gain an understanding of the requirements for the Innovations and Regional Priority Credits and how they should be documented. This course will also address the LEED certification process, timelines and how to respond to requests from the LEED Review teams. In addition, it will cover effective building policy development as it relates to building operations.

  • Module 1: Documentation Submission Process and LEED Certification Process (Split and Conventional)
  • Module 2: LEED Review Procedures
  • Module 3: Building Policy Related Credits
  • Module 4: Innovation in Design and Regional Priority Credits
