Continuing Education

UL Environment provides programs to educate design and specifying professionals on indoor air quality (IAQ) and sustainability. Continuing education units (CEUs) offer to increase understanding of sustainability and indoor air quality issues specific to built environments, such as commercial offices, healthcare settings and educational facilities.

Course Accreditations

All courses are Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) and Sustainable Design (SD) accredited through the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Other course accreditations include the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC).

Scheduling a Course

UL Environment will co-sponsor CEU events at your request. UL Environment presenters are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professionals (LEED AP) and can assist with making an impact at an organizational meeting of your choice.

To schedule a CEU, email: education@ul.com.

Available Courses

Healthy Indoor Air by Design

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

This course is designed to communicate the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and empower architects, designers and specifiers to employ strategies to improve the IAQ in the spaces they are creating. The course includes background on the impact of indoor air pollution on human health and economics. Participants will learn to identify sources of indoor air pollutants, illustrated by several case studies that highlight the effects of controlling, versus not controlling, IAQ at the design phase of building construction. Emphasis will also be placed on how participants can incorporate good IAQ principles into sustainable building projects.

Design to Prevent the Damaging Effects of Mold

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

This basic level course outlines the role of the architect in preventing mold growth in their projects. The participants will gain understanding of the impact mold has on building integrity and materials, quantify the financial impact of mold and discuss its effects on human health. The course will explore the sources of moisture intrusion and will detail preventive strategies to minimize moisture intrusion throughout the design, construction and operations and maintenance of a building.

Indoor Air Quality and Healing Environments

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

This intermediate level course covers current issues affecting healthcare such as chemical and biological hazards, special ventilation requirements, indoor air quality, as well as the factors influencing future healthcare construction and design - demographics, cost containment and health and wellness maintenance. Further, the impact of these factors on sustainable building practices of healthcare and healing environments is discussed. This course explores the impact of IAQ by focusing on effective design strategies from project concept through construction including operations and maintenance. Identification of building construction resources for creating high-performance healthcare buildings of various types is covered. Case studies illustrate the successes of existing high-performance healing environments.

Making the Grade: Healthy Schools Nurturing Healthy Kids

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), IDCEC (0.1 CEU), GBCI (1 CE)

This intermediate level course will help designers and building maintenance teams create and maintain K-12 schools that strive for enhanced indoor air quality. Good indoor air quality is fundamental in protecting the health, safety and welfare of children, faculty and staff. This course discusses the health risks, sources of indoor air pollution in K-12 facilities, and strategies for creating healthy educational environments. This course will also explore the cost and financial benefits associated with enhanced indoor air quality. Additionally, this course will identify helpful resources that aid in the design and maintenance of an educational space seeking a healthy indoor environment.

Clearing the Air on Sustainability: Why Good Indoor Air Quality Matters

Health, Safety & Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), GBCI (1 CE)

This intermediate level course identifies overarching aspects of sustainability and how sustainable design works to integrate societal, economic and environmental goals for the benefit of all. Discussion of how synergies can be created by implementing these elements resulting in improved health, lower energy consumption, productivity increases and decreased building maintenance costs is covered. There is a special emphasis on good indoor air quality and improved health, as these are aspects of sustainable design that have the biggest impact on user comfort and the financial success and life expectancy of the built environment. First, second and third-party certifications are discussed, specifically the resources they provide to design and construction professionals as contrasted with “greenwashing” tactics. Cost analysis studies are also provided to identify average green building premiums and long-term cost benefits. Course conclusion highlights the overall progress of sustainable design.

Transparency and the Role of Environmental Product Declarations

Health, Safety and Welfare Credits: AIA (1LU), GBCI (1 CE)

In the world of Sustainability, the need for authenticity, credibility and truth often is mitigated by eco-labels. The emergence of over 400 eco-labels has left many consumers and purchasers confused about the credibility of environmental and sustainable claims. The combination of the eco-label with transparency based disclosure tools gives architects, designers, and specifiers the tools they need to make smarter purchasing decisions, and confidence that the claims on which they are basing their purchases and the companies they support align with their values. Through the use of EPDs, transparency is quickly becoming a requirement. This course will elaborate on the development of and uses for EPDs.
