Envision Envision logo

The Envision sustainability rating system is an international standard for assessing project effects across a variety of categories, including resource allocation, the natural world, quality of life, and climate change. This 8-hour training is designed for those who work in planning, engineering, architecture, operations and maintenance or procurement.

This training will provide instruction in the practical application of the Envision Rating System through presentations, group exercises, and case studies.

Some reasons to take the training:

  • Envision is used by Metro, the County and City of Los Angeles
  • Envision acts as a guide for making more informed decisions about the sustainability of infrastructure projects, aligned with Metro initiative, policies and priorities.
  • Highly rated Envision projects have been found to have long-term viability, lower cost, few negative impacts on the community, and saves owners and operators money over time.

The workshop will qualify participants to take the Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) accreditation exam.

Trainings are offered monthly.
