Engineered Green Infrastructure/LID Training
Over the past couple of years, we've heard from individuals who were interested in either completing additional LID electives or upgrading their knowledge in a specific LID topic. In partnership with STEP - we have developed the opportunity for participants to do that.
Learners can now complete individual courses from the Low-Impact Development & Climate Resilience program.
November 2023 - May 2024
Adaptation to climate change requires the adoption of resilient, engineered green infrastructure to manage stormwater from a quantitative and qualitative perspective. This is of increasing importance for planners, designers, engineers, landscape architects, and construction professionals to ensure that the infrastructure designed today is adaptive to a changing climate.
Learners can choose to complete any of the individual courses that are part of the Sustainable Infrastructure: Low-Impact Development & Climate Resilience program or add a course to the program to further enhance their knowledge in the field.
