1 AIA LU/HSW; 0.1 IACET CEU*; 1 AIBD P-CE; AAA 1 Structured Learning Hour; AANB 1 Hour of Core Learning; AAPEI 1 Structured Learning Hour; This course can be self-reported to the AIBC, as per their CE Guidelines.; MAA 1 Structured Learning Hour; NLAA 1 Hour of Core Learning; NSAA 1 Hour of Core Learning; NWTAA 1 Structured Learning Hour; OAA 1 Learning Hour; SAA 1 Hour of Core Learning

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the principles and strategies behind zero-energy school design and construction.
  2. Discuss how innovative concrete systems such as insulated concrete forms (ICFs) contribute to energy-efficient and resilient buildings that protect the health, safety, and welfare of students.
  3. Assess how a combination of energy-efficiency strategies, high-performance building envelopes, and solar power is used to meet zero-energy criteria.
  4. Describe the contribution that concrete makes to safe and productive schools by providing energy-efficient, quiet, and resilient structures.
