This course meets the requirements for Net Zero Carbon Design for California license renewals and is provided gratis to AIA members courtesy of AIA California.

Non-AIA members can purchase this cost for $25 or buy a ZNCD Passport for $75 and select up to 4 courses to meet the required 5 hours for license renewals.

This course, the first in a two-part series in partnership with the Carbon Leadership Forum, guides viewers through core concepts of carbon analysis and defines commonly used and often misunderstood terms such as embodied carbon, whole-life carbon, and zero carbon. Course takers will develop a foundational understanding of the built environment’s contribution to global climate change, increase their carbon literacy, and be better positioned to embody carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated over the full life cycle of a building.

Upon successful completion of a multiple-choice quiz, a Certificate of Completion will be available for download and can be used to verify your licensure requirements.
