      9:00am-10:30am | Worth 1.5 HSW/SD; 1.5 GBCI CE Hours
      This course is ideal for anyone wishing to learn more about incorporating green building strategies into their projects. The seminar will discuss the importance of green building and the integrative design and construction processes. The green building rating systems and tools, including LEED, will be introduced for various project types. Since LEED is the most prominent of the tools, the presenter will use the LEED categories to describe the concepts and strategies relevant to sustainable and efficient design and construction processes.

      II. The Minimum Program Requirements (MPR) of LEED
      10:30am - 12:00pm | Worth 1.5 HSW/SD; 1.5 LEED Specific GBCI CE Hours (BD+C, ID+C, O+M)
      This course provides crucial information on the minimum requirements that every potential LEED project must comply with in order to become certified. Students will be introduced to the discussion of why Minimum Program Requirements are important and why we should focus on project compliance as a first step toward LEED Certification. The seminar will discuss the importance of meeting each Minimum Program Requirement as it refers to the different LEED Rating Systems. The seminar will also cover different project type requirements and how they differ from such topics as occupancy and minimum square footage requirements.

      III. Educating the Client: Owner, Operator, Occupant & The Community
      12:30pm - 2:30pm | Worth 2.0 HSW/SD; 2.0 LEED Specific GBCI CE Hours (BD+C, ID+C, O+M)

The seminar will place an emphasis on training and documentation during the design and construction phase as related to the different LEED rating systems, as well as training and outreach during the occupancy phase. It will also cover real life examples of client education within several LEED certified projects.

The seminar will identify issues such as indoor air quality, acoustical performance, low-emitting materials, thermal comfort, controllability of systems, and access to daylight and views.
