Join us as we employ evidence-based design, which reveals how materials and products used in interior spaces directly impact health/wellness of people, pets and the environment. You’ll learn to compellingly inform your clients with accuracy. Also, you’ll learn how to navigate the latest industry resources to ensure you have the knowledge, tools and foresight to make sustainable, healthy and informed decisions for building occupants, as well as to provide documentation for project accreditation submissions.
