Course description

BREEAM AP Operations - USA

This course provides US-based professionals with a recognised qualification to offer sustainability advice for operational assets, guiding projects through the in-use assessment process and helping to achieve sustainability and BREEAM goals.

This training course qualifies you to provide sustainability and BREEAM advice to operational assets. It equips you with the knowledge and skills to deliver the requirements of BREEAM In-Use, a comprehensive environmental assessment method for assessing and rating the sustainability of existing commercial and residential assets.

Upon completing the course, you will be able to seamlessly guide assets through the BREEAM assessment process which provides a framework to help owners, managers and occupiers to adopt sustainable solutions in a cost-effective manner and provides market recognition for their achievements.

You will gain an understanding of the BREEAM AP's role, and the requirements needed for an asset to meet targets. You will also develop the ability to facilitate the BREEAM assessment, schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to realise the target BREEAM rating.

With this qualification you can confidently maximize the value your clients gain from using BREEAM In-Use and successfully support their assets through the BREEAM assessment process.

Successfully completing this course qualifies you for the BREEAM AP subscription, recognising your advisory expertise in helping assets reach their sustainability goals.
