Available now from Acuity Brands are educational PowerPoint® sessions that focus on many technical aspects of energy codes and energy-related program qualifications. These can be invaluable to understanding energy codes, ordering products that meet federal Buy American requirements, and for qualifying for LEED recognition.
The presentations are:
- Energy codes ASHRAE 90.1-2007
- Energy initiatives EPAct 2005 Tax Deduction and EPAct/Energy Estimator
- Federal regulations The Buy American Provisions
- Sustainability LEED v2009 (aka v3)
While these educational programs are not certified for AIA credit, for each 60 minutes of sessions completed (totaling 60 minutes) the sessions will qualify for one self-reporting continuous-education unit. After completing each training session, complete the two-minute survey. Results from these surveys allow Acuity Brands to make improvements as needed.
To date, overall usefulness of the training has scored a 4.8 out of a possible 5, said Richard Heinisch, Acuity Brands Manager for Energy and Environmental Standards. He welcomes input for additional training topics at Richard.Heinisch@AcuityBrands.com.
