Fundamentals of Envision and Sustainable Infrastructure
Apr 11, 2023 10:00 am - 3:00 pm Virtual Delivery, District Of Columbia

This course will be virtually delivered via Zoom. A Zoom link will be distributed to all registrants in the weeks leading up to the live event. 

This course presents fundamental principles and practices of sustainability in enhancing infrastructure projects. The modern history of sustainability is presented to establish the motivation for improving sustainable performance. The Envision framework is introduced as a tool to support higher sustainability performance through better choices in infrastructure development. Examples from the portfolio of Envision-verified projects will illustrate improvements over conventional practices and expanded implementation of sustainability. This course will also address barriers that impede sustainability and guide participants in getting started with Envision through practical approaches drawn from the framework.

Who should attend?

This introductory course is intended for anyone in the sustainable infrastructure community, including:

  • Planners, architects, engineers, developers, owners, constructors, and operators.
  • Managers and decision-makers who are working in public-sector agencies and private-sector companies.
  • Employees at the municipal, state/provincial, or federal level with responsibility for infrastructure.
  • Thought leaders and influencers in the architecture, engineering, and construction (a/e/c) industry.
  • Infrastructure professionals who support project delivery and Envision implementation.

I’m already an ENV SP. Should I attend this course?

While new ENV SPs may benefit from the deeper exploration of sustainability concepts, practices, and Envision use cases, this course is not necessarily intended for an ENV SP with experience. Seasoned ENV SPs may find more value in the prescribed content or other resources in ISI’s “All Courses” library. This course qualifies for three (3) elective hours toward ENV SP credential maintenance.

Envision Verification Applicants Course (April 13 - 14, 2023)
Apr 13, 2023 8:00 am - 1:00 pm Virtual Delivery via Zoom, District Of Columbia

This 10-hour course will be virtually delivered over 2-days via Zoom by ISI’s Verification staff. Registration will be open until the Friday before the first day of the course. A Zoom link will be distributed to all registrants on the Monday prior to the live event. Note: This occurrence of this course is being offered at an adjusted time (8:00-1:00pm EDT each day) to accommodate participants in time zones outside of the United States and Canada.

The Envision Verification Applicants Course is a live web-based training that will provide ENV SPs a closer look at the Envision project verification process. A foundational understanding of the Envision Rating System is required as this course will not cover the same material as the Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) training. By completing this course, participants will better understand the ins-and-outs of Envision verification, including timelines, necessary deliverables, and expectations of the project team. In addition, ISI’s Verification staff will offer submission tips and insights into Envision concepts and credits. Participants will have an opportunity to practice writing credit coversheets and compiling project documentation. Class size is kept intentionally small to encourage participants to engage with the materials and ask questions of ISI’s Verification staff.
