Course Description

098-LEED for Existing Buildings

Today's built environment is being scrutinized due to current economic conditions, reduced availability of non-renewal resources, and tenant requests for healthier workspaces. This combination has changed the way we build, operate, and manage our buildings.

LEED® certified buildings are one way in which the places we work are meeting expectations of building owners, mangers, and the people who work in them. LEED for Existing Buildings, Operations and Maintenance (EB:O&M), is one standard within the LEED family of certifications, which specifically addresses the operational activities of the current inventory of commercial buildings in the United States, and sets guidance for increase profitability and sought after real estate.

This paper will introduce the LEED - EB:O&M rating system, demonstrate the benefits of a certified building, offer examples of how to successfully design a project, and provide examples of Federal, State, and Local Incentives related to sustainable buildings.

Good basic overview of LEED EBOM, but is dated. Needs to be revamped and offered to cover LEED v4.

LEED for Existing Building

LEED is the package that may replace "energy conservation programs" "save the plant" and "health concerns from sick buildings" initiatives, BUT it (LEED) has its problems. I've heard that the approved glues will not hold, LEED is too much work, numbers can still be inaccurate BUT I'm glad I took this course. I've at least raised the hood and viewed some of engine parts.

Very good cource in my past experiance with LEED material.

Existing Buildings are different than new construction and this cource was needed in addition to my 3PDU points.

LEED certification is completely new to me, so the course satisfied my desire for a basic understanding of the program. Questions were fair and required some thought, but were not unduly complicated.

Good Topic, bad wording
Urmilla Sowell

The topic is very interesting and one that has potential. However, after taking this course and passing the test, I am left confused and wanting more references and explanation. I STRONGY recommend that someone review the course material for spelling and grammar. Proscribed is NOT the same as Prescribed. Some of the questions on the test are ambiguous and two answers can be rationalized.

It was a good introduction to LEED for Existing Buildings. The many references will be helpful in learning more on this subject.

Good material and a strong start to the presentation, but it digressed into a technocratic discussion that was not appropriate to its overview objective. I strongly disagree that the presented matrial supports the purported correct answer to test question #6.

I felt like many of the questions were trick questions rather than an assesment of the material understanding. I had to really parse the meaning in the writing, and found that the writing was sometimes vauge. For example, on Page 6, it describes a 20% savings of the total construction costs. Does this mean that the operating savings are 20% of the construction costs, or are the construction costs 20% less. The next sentence also says that sales prices at 10% higher, but the question on the test is related to rental prices.

This course is a quick but comprehensive guide to a field of practice which is new to me but sounds promising and rewarding. I was impressed by the amount of information I got in a short course: useful stuff and practical. I will look more into this field
