The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) has announced its new in-person ISI Trainer program available to provide Envision Sustainability Professional accreditation training.  

ISI Trainers are the only individuals authorized to facilitate Envision Sustainability Professional (ENV SP) accreditation workshops, which qualifies participants to take the online ENV SP credentialing exam.

Twenty-five people have participated in the first ISI Trainer course, which took place in Watertown, MA, in late April 2014. These ISI Trainers represent 21 of ISI’s Charter Member companies.

“ISI’s web- based training program has met with great success,” said ISI President and CEO Bill Bertera. "In order to meet the growing demand for in-person accreditation workshops, we found that there is also a demand for in-person accreditation training, particularly from public agencies that want the training to come to them, so their key people can work together to use Envision as a tool to help them analyze and evaluate the levels of economic, environmental, and social aspects of their infrastructure projects.”

To date, over 2,000 people have earned the ENV SP credential through the online training.  

Launched in 2012, the Envision sustainable infrastructure rating system is a comprehensive planning and design guide that helps infrastructure owners and designers meet sustainability goals and address projects’ lifecycle economic, social and economic aspects. This holistic tool can be used to guide decisions about investment of scarce resources and to address community and environmental priorities on all types of civil infrastructure.
