What is the purpose of ISI's Education Program?
The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure's Education Program is being developed specifically to meet the needs of professionals that are involved in any or all parts of horizontal infrastructure project life cycle from conceptualization, planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance, to decommissioning/repurposing. ISI's Education Program will evolve as practitioners learn from the application of the Envision™ sustainable infrastructure rating system.
Why should I take the Envision™ course?
The Envision™ sustainable infrastructure rating system web-based course equips individuals to successfully apply the rating tool on infrastructure projects. Completion of the ISI web-based course is a pre-requisite to taking the ISI Sustainability Professional credential (ENV SP) examination. ISI credentialed professionals are qualified to lead the development of project applications that will be submitted to ISI for recognition.
What are the qualifications of the ISI trainers?
ISI trainers have practical experience in sustainable infrastructure projects, the application of the Envision™ sustainable infrastructure rating system, and demonstrated training skills.
Who offers ISI Envision™ sustainable infrastructure rating system training?
Training for Envision™ will be provided by ISI through the ISI website and through designated third party organizations.
What types of educational resources are currently available from ISI?
Case studies on the application of the ISI Envision™ sustainable infrastructure rating system to infrastructure projects are available for download from the ISI website. Case studies, project data sheets, and other educational resources will be added to website as they become available.
What other types of education and training resources will ISI offer?
Initial training and education sessions will focus on the application of the Envision™ rating system. ISI will provide training modules for additional project stages and phases as they are released for public use. Those modules will be delivered through web based training and classroom sessions and may include case studies, podcasts, webinars and blogs.
