Introduction to the Envision Rating System. Envision Certification Course
Following the release of the Envision V3 Guidance Manual in Spanish, members of Sinfranova carried out the first Envision Certification Workshop in Spanish. The Federación Mexicana de Colegios de Ingenieros Civiles (FEMCIC) and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) host the workshop.
The course is instructed by Cristina Contreras, Founder and Managing Director of Sinfranova. She has been an Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) and a certified Envision trainer since 2013.
The two-day online course is designed to educate candidates on Envision, a sustainability framework and rating system that enables a thorough examination of the sustainability and resiliency of all types of civil infrastructure.
After completing the online training, candidates are able to understand how Envision works, how it can improve projects' sustainability, and how it can be successfully applied to plan, design, assess, and deliver more sustainable infrastructure projects.
