Introduction to the ISI Envision Rating System (RV-11048AW)
The Institute for Sustainability's Envision rating system for civil infrastructure is quickly being adopted by public agencies for use in ranking organizational projects according to sustainable principles recognition and fulfillment during the design and planning stages. The Envision rating system is backed by three major national organizations responsible for the vast majority of US civil infrastructure: APWA, ACEC and ASCE. This puts it squarely in the mainstream of thinking within the engineering community about future infrastructure needs. Envision is a relatively new initiative, but early indications are that it will gain wide acceptance as the national standard for assessing sustainability attained on civil infrastructure projects. This interactive online course will introduce you to the Envision Rating system and how it can help you organize your project in the sustainability realm. This course also lists the requirements on how to become an accredited Envision Sustainability Professional, Verifier, Trainer, or ISI member.
