[ AIBC 4 Core LUs • 3.5 BGCI Ce Hours (General or LEED-specific for any specialty) • 3.5 BOMI CPDs ]

In this half day workshop, you’ll gain a solid grasp of LEED v4 changes and the positive impact this will have on current green building practices in Canada. As a result, you’ll be able to communicate effectively to colleagues and clients about some of the major high-level changes occurring in LEED v4.

Course Highlights

  • This half day course introduces the LEED v4 rating system, and discusses its flexibility and applicability to an expanded range of building types.
  • Participants will explore common themes in the new rating system, synergies within the system, the integrative process, and the role of performance.
    • The new Integrative Process credit is introduced, detailing some of the strategies for earning the credit.
    • The enhanced LEED v4 system goals and their on LEED point allocation are covered.
    • Course attendees will have the opportunity to network and work in small groups to reinforce the learning experience.

Please note that this course is not a technical review course. Canadian participants will learn how LEED v4 is being adapted for use in Canada through the current development of Alternative Compliance Paths (ACPs). Note: ACPs are talked about in general, but the course itself does not go into detail regarding specific Canadian ACPs.
