- Understand documentation requirements
- Identify how LEED prerequisites and credits will affect estimates, construction schedule and subcontractor scope of work
- What is LEED?
- LEED Certification Process
- Sustainable Sites
- Water Efficiency
- Energy and Atmosphere
- Materials and Resources
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Innovation in Design
- Regional Priority
- Advantage and Disadvantages of LEED
The course begins the date we receive your registration and payment. All course work must be completed within 12 months of that date. The $225 (U.S. dollars) non-refundable registration fee must be paid in advance to Iowa State University.
