Required Competency Course Syllabus


 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This six-hour course fulfills all CSL continuing education renewal requirements.
The fully narrated course will satisfy the following required topics: Code Review (1 HR), Workplace Safety (1HR), Business Practices/Workers’ Compensation (1 HR), Energy (1 HR), and Lead Safe Practices (2 HRs).

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the changes made to the 2012 International Conservation Codes and how those changes can ultimately reduce and conserve energy consumption.
  • Recognize the hazards inherent at a construction job site, and describe ways to prevent them.
  • Outline the regulations surrounding Massachusetts’ Workers’ Compensation and determine how best to both protect employees and manage costs.
  • Identify the hazards associated with lead paint disturbance, and the rules that surround the industry when renovating.
  • Explain some of the cost savings in both labor and materials associated with energy efficient systems.

Successful Site Design and Technological Innovation

 

Course Description

While land developers are seeking to maximize their land use and minimize their development costs, governmental regulations are applying pressures on budgets that can kill a project.  Architects are being relied upon to steer site decisions and engineering professionals in order to produce cost effective and functional designs that meet the myriad of growing municipal requirements. 

As technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects can not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment.  However, energy efficient building requirements can be stringent and cost prohibitive. It is a challenge to provide customers with the latest energy efficient systems–all within a budget that homeowners are willing to provide.  This course will help industry professionals identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project.

In this 6 hour, fully narrated and video course, you will learn to navigate your entire team through the challenges and pit falls of site development, all the time with an eye toward technological innovation.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the process of securing the appropriate information that will help to develop a scope, schedule, and budget.
  • Be able to develop a building program, including site selection, utilization and wayfinding.
  • Accurately define energy conservation and generation concepts, and describe at least three efficient use of materials that will save building and operation costs.
  • Outline at least one application of energy efficient design in indoor systems.
