Jim Newton, P.E., DEE
In today’s environment, the conditions and constraints under which infrastructure must perform are increasingly challenging. Demands for water and energy resources continue to climb, making conservation and the use of alternatives a design requirement. As the effects of a warming climate are likely to continue, communities are being forced to adapt to new conditions through corresponding changes in infrastructure design and construction. In order to meet the serious challenges that communities face for infrastructure, the Envision™ rating system has been designed to be used not only as a project assessment tool but as a guidance for sustainable infrastructure design and as an integrated education and resource library. The purpose of Envision is to initiate a systemic change and to transform the way infrastructure is designed, built and operated. The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) developed Envision™ with the assistance of the Harvard Zofnass Program. The Envision™ program is similar to the LEED program, but applies to infrastructure projects.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
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.
NY PE & PLS: You must choose courses that are technical in nature or related to matters of laws and ethics contributing to the health and welfare of the public. NY Board does not accept courses related to office management, risk management, leadership, marketing, accounting, financial planning, real estate, and basic CAD.
