The CENTER FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDING RESEARCH is offering an educational training series during Fall 2017. The educational sessions are 1) Understanding the Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) as a part of the B3 process, 2) Design with Plug Loads and 3) Creating high efficiency building with little or no cost using Accelerated Performance.
Each class will be held at the University of Minnesota and is eligible for 4 AIA HSW LUs. Additional information for each course can be found HERE
