Length: 1 hour
Course Code: CEU-102980
Green remodeling is the design and construction of projects that reduce the environmental impacts of renovation and utilize non-toxic materials for healthy, high-performing interiors. This course features REGREEN©, the green residential remodeling program that emphasizes whole-house systems thinking, professional integration, and green design methodologies. The program is based on the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines©, a set of best practices for green residential remodeling. By the end of this course, participants will be able to explain REGREEN principles, access the REGREEN Guidelines in two formats, perform a comprehensive home assessment, identify climate and site characteristics in REGREEN case studies, and implement REGREEN strategies into their next remodeling project. This 100-level course is the prerequisite for the in-person REGREEN Implementation Workshop, which is the capstone course in the REGREEN Trained™ certificate program.
