August 2009. Webinars on Tuesdays at 6:00pm Pacific Time, Aug 4, 11, 18, 25
This is an introductory course on life cycle assessment. Participants will learn the steps involved and complete a simple LCA in a business simulation using an Excel spreadsheet. This is a great introductory course for:
--sustainability professionals wondering if LCA would be a good field to get into
--sustainability practitioners who may need to hire a firm to do a detailed LCA and need to know enough about the process to manage the project
--sustainability professionals who need an introduction to LCA before taking the 'deep dive' into the certification training.
Webinars of roughly an hour will be on Mondays at 5pm Pacific time. Plan to do several more hours of work a week.
This class does not teach you how to use a common LCA database like SimaPro and is not sufficient to pass the LCA certification. It is a prerequisite for the LCA certification training that we hope to offer later (although experienced LCA professionals can 'test out' of this course).
