    Program Description

    Title 24 Training Program

    Okapi Architecture is offering a series of training events in southern California, funded by the Southern California Gas Company. The purpose of the training is to provide a 60-90 minute summary of the most recent changes to Title 24, discuss how to effectively utilize the Energy Code ACE website, and link architects to the statewide IOU Codes and Standards team who are charged with implementing the new standards.

    Learning Objective

    Attendees will leave the training with a basic working knowledge of the changes to Title 24. They will also have an initial orientation about the benefits of referring to and using the Energy Code ACE website that offers a wide variety of tools conducive to implementing the updated standards. Attendees will also view projects that have successfully implemented the changes in Title 24 as best practice examples. The presentations are interactive and designed to offer attendees the opportunity to ask key questions.

    Continuing Education Unit Credit: 1.5 CEU to be offered through the training.

    Building Resilience Los Angeles Workshop


    Building resilience means planning for change in ways that make you better off now. By leveraging and linking the work organizations are already doing on sustainability, risk management, emergency preparedness and business continuity, you can create new opportunities that improve the public good and the bottom line. USGBC-LA’s Building Resilience-LA program has developed a methodology for busting silos and unleashing potential of buildings, organizations and communities so that they can adapt and thrive no matter what disruptions come their way.

    Building resilience requires new skill sets, processes and tools to get the most out of resilience assessments, planning and implementation. USGBC-LA is offering full-day capacity-building workshops to set practitioners in a wide variety of fields and departments on the path to success. The workshops are based on the Building Resilience-LA Primer for Facilities to help existing building projects create physical, social and economic resilience. Using real-world case studies and hands-on exercises, this course will get you ready to implement the BRLA process in your projects. 

    Who should attend: Building owners, managers and operators; architects, engineers and sustainability professionals; risk managers and emergency management professionals; community organizers and public health professionals, and anyone seeking to learn how to create more resilient buildings and organizations.

    GREEN PROFESSIONAL 

     BUILDING SKILLS TRAINING


    Fundamentals of Building Green

    The construction industry is moving quickly towards greener, high-performing buildings, creating increased demand across the country for sustainable building skills.

    This course teaches the basics of sustainability and provides an overview of the essential strategies and work practices that make buildings more efficient. GPRO covers the “green gap” between standard trade skills and the new awareness required to successfully implement sustainable building practices.

    Individuals with experience in construction and building operations will have an advantage when taking Fundamentals of Building Green and in passing the certificate exam, but anyone with an interest in green building is encouraged to participate.

    GPRO Fundamentals of Building Green is the prerequisite for all GPRO trade-specific courses.

    Offered in partnership with Metro, USGBC-LA is pleased to present the Fundamentals of Green Building course in two installments. The course fee includes materials, instruction, and certification exam.

    Small businesses and non-profit partners of Metro qualify for a discounted registration and should use the code: METROPARTNERS when prompted.

    Please provide the appropriate SBE, DBE or NAICS code to verify your small business or non-profit once you have entered your name and email. Small businesses are defined as having an annual budget under $1.3 million.
