John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
From green cars to green buildings, building "green" has gathered tremendous momentum around the world in recent years as a result of increased awareness of global warming and record-high prices of natural resources. The goal of building "green" for the construction industry is to reduce the life cycle cost of buildings while maximizing health and environmental performance.
This course introduces green building concepts and practices to architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners with respect to conservation of natural resources, the wise use of energy, improvement of air quality, and development of livable communities. The green building strategies provided in this course are applicable to various types of construction, from commercial to residential.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. All quiz questions are reviewed during the webinar. You are guaranteed to pass this quiz.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
